Abstract

To help special education planning teams reach agreements, several State
Education Agencies (SEAs) provide the option of facilitated Individualized
Education Program (IEP) meetings. The use of externally facilitated IEP
meetings is growing nationally. When relationships between parents and
schools are strained, facilitated meetings may be beneficial. This guide:
1) provides an introduction to IEP facilitation for parents and other
family members to help orient them to this emerging practice, and
2) discusses the use of external IEP facilitators who are not directly
affiliated with the team, or who may be independent of both the team and the school district.
