Most attendees of IEP meetings do not facilitate the meetings. However, they are active participants with a need to understand the role of the facilitator and the approaches and techniques used by the facilitator. These people can include:
- School administrators
- Classroom teachers
- Related services providers
- Social workers
This half-day workshop will prepare these IEP team stakeholders to be valuable participants in a facilitated IEP meeting. Participants will leave with a clear understanding of their role in the meeting as well as how to prepare for active participation, ensuring the meeting process stays focused on the needs of the student. Participants strengthen their understanding of the power of a collaborative, non-adversarial, and compliant IEP meeting process. Additionally, participants will build skills to broker more effective and efficient communication among all team members.
