If you feel like there are ongoing problems at school that need to be addressed, let me encourage you to address those issues with the school before the holiday break. If things aren’t right at school, or if your child isn’t being adequately supported, you should ask for an Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting before the break so that these concerns can be addressed.

I adhere to the belief that a parent can’t be an equal member in the planning process of an IEP without the ability and opportunity to visit their child’s classroom (or proposed classroom) to see the environment and how their child is functioning in that setting.
Preparation and persistence remain the keys to IEP success for parents. A prepared parent will arrive at IEP meetings with a clear set of objectives. They will know what their child’s strengths and weaknesses are, and they will be prepared to make the case for why specific supports and services are appropriate for their child.
