What an exciting day at RettGirl.org.
You asked for it and now we have it! An IEP bank has been added to our School Stuff category at RettGirl.org.
We know how frustrating and confusing the whole IEP process can be and we want to help as much as possible. This is just the beginning of our continuous efforts to make RettGirl the "go-to" place for EVERYTHING Rett!
We have started the bank off with a Pre-K a K, and a K-2 IEP. They were taken directly from our own daughters' files and retyped using the language we all want to see in our IEPs.
So many times we sit down at those meeting shaking in our boots because we don't know what to say or what the school wants. Everyone tells us we are in charge. We are! Believe me. I went through 3 IEPs and 3 she-is-incapable-of-progressing meetings before I took over the meeting and the IEP and we couldn't be happier!
Remember we are building and always welcome your input. If you have an IEP you would like to share with us we urge you to do so. It took me less than 30 minutes to type one up off of the master copy as to exclude all the district and personal information.
Feel free to scan and send us your own that you would like to share with other parents who are struggling. All names of districts,teachers and staff must be omitted or blacked out. We will even re-work it for you if you just want to send it and don't know where to start. We do suggest keeping it to goals and therapies and what works for your daughter. No one needs all that mess of what the district thinks your daughter can't do!
We have also added an example Care Notes section as well as Educational Information Links under the School Stuff Category and in the IEP BANK!
We hope you will find this as exciting as we do. As always feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!
