IEP's can -and often do become so long and convoluted that it can be a lot to go thru and/or remember for the teachers. Is there something that you have found that works as a reminder or as a communication to a new teacher at the start of a new year that highlights what your child needs in order to be successful at school? At our school, it seems like the IEP is a useless document. It feels like it is written from the perspective of what the school needs to do to cover their butts but not really as a guide for how to help your child succeed. We just completed an annual IEP, but I am taking my son out of his current school and transferring him to another one in the same district next year. Just wondering how I should communicate what it is that really works for him (and doesn't work for him), other than just providing them with a copy of a badly written IEP. And for any teachers reading, what do you use to go by in dealing with your IEP students day-to-day - or what would you leave a substitute teacher so they knew how to work with your student in your absence? Thanks!
