The Twelve Days of Christmas Printables: IEP Meeting Alert Levels

By December 17, 2010

Follow me on:

IEP Meeting Alert LevelsOn the fifth day of Christmas, my About.com guide gave to me
five alert levels,
four helpful bookmarks,
three teacher gifts,
two warning labels,
and a carol for special-needs glee.

The Twelve Days of Christmas Printables continues with a mini-poster for maintaining your sense of humor about those high-pressure, low-self-esteem meetings in which professionals tell you what you should agree to about your child's schooling. Will the alert level be low, with only a minor risk of backstabbing and deception? Elevated, with significant risk of law violation and denial of services? Or severe, with a high likelihood of vein-popping, heart-stopping outrage? Give printouts of this warning sign to support-group members and fellow IEP warriors, e-mail it to your online allies, and keep a copy by your phone to keep track of the risk level on those long conversations with school personnel.

Print and use these alert levels as my gift to you today, and come back tomorrow to see what I've got for you next.
