I put this IEP Survival Kit together for Pea's Mom. IEP's are so stressful. I don't know why. Its like the DMV. You just knoooooooooow its going to be interesting. Pea's Mom and I are both Type A personalities...actually sometimes I swear we share the same brain. She worked so very hard on Pea's IEP, I wanted to give her something to enjoy after all of her efforts.
Preparing for an IEP is mentally exhausting. It's your chance to advocate to the very best of your ability for your child. Did I mention it is mental exhausting? You stay up late at night going over your goals and what your child needs and deserves. You wake up thinking of additional research articles or information that may help this team of professionals understand you on common ground.
If I could have fit a bottle of wine in here, I would have.
Here's to you IEP!
Nothing a little Edward, a latte, and chocolate-covered strawberries can't handle.
