I have to admit, I'm a little bit excited and kind of proud!  It serves 6 school districts in our area and only a couple parents from each district were asked to join.  My DS has only been on an IEP for about a month now.  I have always been fairly involved with his school stuff though and actually tried to get him on an IEP for 2 years.  Anyway, it just made me feel like maybe they value my ideas?  I hope so because I am going to do it.  :-)
