Promoting Student Participation and Ownership of the IEP Process

P5943_Engaging_EmpoweringThis week’s FREE tool is a list we should all hang on our conference room walls: Promoting Student Participation and Ownership of the IEP Process. What better way to celebrate the fact we are right smack in the middle of Learning Disabilities Awareness Month than with a list of ways to put students with IEPs in the driver seat!
