Understanding the IEP Evaluation Process: Part 1
Show Notes

Welcome back to another episode of "Don't IEP Alone." I'm your host, Lisa Lightner, a special education advocate based near Philadelphia. 

In this episode, we delve into a topic that many parents encounter when navigating the world of IEPs: evaluations. We often find that parents reach out to advocates when things aren't going well with their child's IEP, and sometimes this can go on for months or even years before seeking help. It got us thinking: what if advocates were involved from the beginning? 

Join us as we explore the comprehensive and robust IEP evaluation process, discussing everything from the initial suspicions and requests for evaluations to reevaluations and independent evaluations. Whether you're a seasoned parent or new to the IEP world, this series will provide valuable insights into ensuring a thorough and effective evaluation process for your child.
