So, it's very important to me that Miles comes with me to his IEP meetings. Because he will have IEP meetings for all of his school life. I want him to be able to advocate in the end. Also, it's always good to bring some treats to IEP so this meeting I made some pumpkin cookies to share. Other things to do is paper with some questions that you need to ask or concerns. I also have a binder that I keep every medical and school things in that I bring everywhere with Miles. I also keep my communication record that I have with his teacher and any test results. Also medication list that Miles has taken and any notes from sitters.
