“The first IEP is definitely a learning experience. The best thing I learned to do in preparation for the meeting was write up a list of my daughter’s strengths – stuff like creative, loves books, great laugh, good with computers (not just academic type things is my point), and weaknesses – poor tolerance for frustration, trouble with transitions, medical stuff (like lactose intolerant and not toilet trained) for example. As she got older I would bring in more academic concerns to the meetings, but at just getting started in school, for me it was more about daily living type stuff.”
