Questions to Ask for Your Child During Special Education School Meetings

Posted: Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 11:40


Pamela Gross Downing, a special education teacher, provides some questions that parents should ask when reviewing school goals for their children with autism. While some school districts call the meeting “Individualized Education Program” (IEP) and others call it “Admission, Review, and Dismissal” (ARD), the objective is to get the best possible education and therapy for your child. Some parents may find it intimidating to be surrounded by school administration, therapists, and counselors.

Some parents may also be hampered by limited English-speaking skills. Downing says, “For children with autism spectrum disorders, focus tightly on the communication, reading and writing goals.” She also explains that while many school districts are short on funding, it is important for your child to receive speech therapy, occupational training, and physical therapy.
