Is something missing from your child's IEP?

Do you look at your child's IEP and feel like it's too vague, something seems to be missing, or the goals are not measurable? Find out what might be missing.

What's missing in your child's IEP?

Does your child's IEP include information relating to enabling your son/daughter to be involved in and progress in the general education curriculum?

Does your child's IEP contain a statement of measurable goals?  Including academic and functional?  These goals should be designed to involve in and make progress in  the general education curriculum and meet each additional educational need.

Too many times, parent's are told "your child can't learn".  "Your child will never be able to learn". Have you been told this by others on the PPT TEAM?

Does your child's IEP and/or daily schedule not list even one academic goal?  Is your child sitting in the Special Ed Resource Room (as it's called) most of the day and you have no idea what your child is doing there, and when you ask you don't get a straight answer?

Does your child's IEP make the grade?  Does it include everything the law requires?  If you feel confident in your advocacy abilities, but are unsure about IEP legal requirements then get a complete S.M.A.R.T. IEP review from Advocate with Faith today.

Why is Patch posting a very obvious advertisement and trying to pass it off as an Article? If this person wants to advertise in Patch shouldn't Patch be charging them for an advertisement? Can I post an advertisement for my company and disguise it as an article?

Blatent advertising, and not at all informative - it assumes the reader knows what an IEP is. Please remove. Is is this the future of Wilton Patch, with anonymous, poorly disguised informercials posing as 'news'?
