Most autism parents with a child in public school will find themselves figuring out an IEP (Individualized Education Program) - a plan with school officials for the child to receive specialized instruction and services. Creating a plan, coordinating with teachers, and ensuring the school follows the IEP can be an exhausting job for a parent. The stress can be compounded by changes in teachers, principals, or budgets each year.
