Who attends an IEP meeting?


Question: Who attends an IEP meeting?
Answer: The IEP meeting is attended by members of the Child Study Team, which usually includes a social worker, a psychologist, a learning specialist, and your child's teachers and therapists. Parents are always to be included in IEP meetings. You have a right to be notified in advance and to change the date if necessary. Although IEP meetings are rarely pleasant, do not be tempted to skip them. You are the expert on your child, and are therefore the most essential member of the team.
