Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
Navigating the school system can feel overwhelming, with parents often feeling outnumbered and unprepared for Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meetings. BCOTB offers IEP support to all of its clients. We work to review existing IEPs, revise old goals, help draft new goals, and attend IEP meetings. During these meetings we recommend modifications and accommodations to the plan as appropriate, propose new or revised goals, and help ensure that your wishes are heard and honored by the IEP team.
Although the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) contains numerous safeguards and protections for children with special needs, parents often do not understand all of the accommodations available to them. For example:
BCOTB can help you better understand your rights as a parent and ensure your child is getting his or her best education.
In addition, BCOTB also reviews school Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs/PBIPs) and recommends treatment modifications, assessments, and more accountable data collection systems when appropriate. If you find that your child’s behavior in the classroom is inhibiting his or her learning and is not being adequately addressed, we can help. Our analysts have the appropriate state and county screenings to observe in classrooms to better inform behavioral and academic recommendations.
