Child advocate for student rights in IEP meetings in Missouri | Missouri Special Education Advocates



The special ed law (IDEA) regulations allows for a parent to take to IEP meetings whomever the parent may invite.
Some parents take family members, some parents take case managers from other agencies.  Taking someone is better than taking no one.
However, who you take with you makes a difference.  In my experience, parents who took case managers from other agencies experienced the status quo from school district personnel.  After all, most case managers knowledge and experience with school districts is similar to how parents are treated regardless, and the school may know how to bamboozle them.  You and your case manager walk away from the IEP meeting assuming the meeting was productive which may not be reality.
