“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.”

Thanks to a partnership with Colorado Circle K stores, Parent to Parent has presented ipads and gift cards to children and youth with disabilities. Parents report that these have become very valuable tools for a student’s participation in school and development of social and academic skills

Our future is best planned today…we must demand real and meaningful disability community engagement. Nothing about us without us, ever!
