Event Details

Many students with disabilities play little to no role in their own Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings and the planning of their services, accommodations, and goals. However, research shows that when students lead their own IEP meetings, they become more engaged in their education, learn important self-advocacy skills, and take greater ownership over their learning. Student-led IEPs promote self-determination and give students a greater sense of control over their education. Educators, administrators, students, and family members are encouraged to attend.

Learning objectives:

  1. What are Student-Led IEPs and why should we do them?
  2. What challenges & rewards are there and how can students participate?
  3. What is the process and what are some available resources?
