IEP Realities

Pitfalls and Possibilities

What to Expect and to Seek

This booklet provides a frank look

at what should be expected 

and what should not in navigating the 

complex regulations and procedures of 

the IEP process.  The system can turn into a maze 

that seems to be an overbearing and obstructive 

monolith of micromanaging technicalities 

and mandates.  This is the IEP user's manual 

that does not come in the box.
