FAQs about IEPs and 504 Plans

Getting started in IEPs can be stressful for parents. From start to finish, it can take over 100 days to have an IEP implemented. You start with asking for IEP evaluations.

This happens often. There are many differences between an IEP and a 504. Learn what the differences are, and what your child needs. Pursue an IEP if you believe your child needs special education.

Parents in the IEP process should receive a booklet called Procedural Safeguards. This outlines your Parent Rights as well as your child’s rights in the process. It is essential that you learn and use your rights and do not rely upon someone else’s interpretation of those rights.

That is one of the most common questions I answer–ideas for IEP Goals for your Child. But, no need to reinvent the wheel–I have thousands of IEP Goal and Accommodation ideas for you to read and personalize for your child.

IEP meetings can be a great source of stress for parents. But, I’ve got you covered. Stick around and you’ll actually be looking forward to them.
