IEP meetings can be overwhelming, but don’t have to be! Join our founding partner Lara Hruska in this comprehensive video as she walks you through the whole process, including who to invite to your meeting (yes, your child can be there!), how to set measurable goals, and ultimately how to get the accommodations they need to grow and thrive in an educational setting. Lara demystifies the jargon, and walks you through what services might be available, how to get the school and district on board, and if/when you should involve an attorney to advocate for your child’s rights under federal and Washington State law. This helpful video also includes real-life examples of IEPs for students with different needs, and dispels some myths about the different kinds of support and elucidates how they can be accessed.
This video was produced in concert with the Washington Autism Alliance. After watching it, you can visit the OSPI website and Wrightslaw for more detailed information about IEPs. You can contact Cedar Law to request a consultation as well.
