IEP Tips includes strategies that parents can use to be more active participants in the IEP process and to develop meaningful education programs for their children. These strategies are not expensive. They do not require parents to obtain degrees in education or advocacy. The tips and strategies offer common sense approaches about how to advocate effectively for children with disabilities. The book provides information about evaluating student progress.

The tips are based upon the authors' experiences and on best practices from the professional literature. To see a few sample tips, read IEP Tips: Taping Meetings.

Teams of parents and educators who use positive interpersonal styles are more likely to be successful. This book provides suggestions about building positive interactions and effective IEP teams.
