I am a mom to two boys, both of whom have multiple special needs. Over the last 13 years, I have been to multiple IEP meetings for my children. I have also talked to numerous other parents who have told me how they have had to fight to get the minimum amount of services for their children. I believe that each child deserves a free and appropriate education that prepares them for further education, employment, and independent living.
I believe that can happen by both parties working together as a team and making sure the goals are focused on those three areas.
