The A-Word, Autism Part 43: Preschool And IEP Meeting

Jack Riley began preschool this year which has been a challenging adjustment for the family. On top of the stress of starting school, the family had an IEP meeting. Typically an IEP meeting happens annually after the child’s birthday, but this year they are having two meetings. The first one they just had was a month after school began because of an agreement they had after due process. An IEP is an individual education plan and is a legally binding document that outlines the specially designed instruction, services, accommodations, plans and goals that will constitute the child’s program. An IEP can determine whether or not Jack Riley needs an aide or not in class, or if the school district is going to provide therapy.
