Rochelle’s Special Education Tips

Whatever you write in the IEP must be implemented. For instance, if you add the supplementary aid of “teacher to initial agenda book” but the student does not bring the teacher the agenda book and so it is not initialed, you have failed to implement the IEP. A reasonable parent may then wonder, what else is not being implemented and a lack of trust issue is created-along with a request for compensatory services. Query: what compensatory services would cover the failure to initial the agenda book (which results in the student not doing his homework?).

Rochelle’s Special Education Tips (“Tips”) are designed to be helpful and thought provoking, but should not be considered legal advice as they may not be accurate for use in all situations.  Tips are based on my opinions and positions in accordance with federal and Maryland law and my over 35 years of experience in the special education legal field.   – Rochelle S.
