Would you be okay with doing an IEP this way?
Lina's teacher is out with what may be the flu and we were to have an IEP meeting today but can't. She called me yesterday to tell me. The IEP has to be locked in by the 25th she asked me if we could do it on Monday but next week is conference week and by the time she is done with the last meeting there isn't time for me to see all of them and get to an appointment that I can't change.
So here is the big question. She said we could do the meeting over the phone with each one of the people involved calling me today to go over their parts of it and then the papers would be sent home with Lina on Monday for me to go over make any changes or just sign the paper and send it back. WWYD?
I told her I would do it as a phone conference because of the way things are going on Monday.
***EDIT*** I did the phone conference. The speech & OT have never worked with her before so they have decided that they are going to stick with the goals that were set at the last IEP in the Spring. Her teacher is worried about the fact that Lina seems to have regressed over the summer. She was at almost the end of Kindergarten abilities, she is now at maybe half way thru Kindergarten level. So the goals are going to be pretty much the same. The teacher wants to just keep the goals the same as last Spring with the goal to be end of kindergarten by Spring and beginning of 1st grade by the end of the school year. The teacher is also adding the recommendation and request that Lina get the Extended School Year to stop this from happening again. I should get the papers on Monday when Lina gets home from school. I can go over them and call with questions or meet with them to do any changes that may need to be made. I'll be going over it very carefully and plan to ask questions if I don't understand what is there or it doesn't seem to be the same as what we discussed.
I hate that they do these IEP's barely over a month after school starts. Most therapies don't start until 2-3 weeks after school starts.
