Parents, You Are the Expert at the IEP Meeting

Reading now: 432

Approximately 10 years ago, I was in an IEP meeting when an older gentleman (I use that term loosely) stood up angrily and said to me, “How dare you question me!

I am the expert and I know all about these kids.“ The kicker? He was the school psychologist. He added, “I have read his file.” He thought and was fully convinced that he knew more than I did, about my own child.

Sadly, he had never even bothered to meet my child. You might discard that story, saying to yourself, “That was 10 years ago, things have changed.” But this past weekend, I spoke with another parent who ran into the same situation just last week.
