Are you familiar with a Facilitated IEP (FIEP)?
If a parent asks, how will you respond?
Facilitated IEP (FIEP) refers to the national trend of having a neutral facilitator for ARD meetings. A neutral facilitator is used most frequently when school and parent relationships are strained. However, the use of facilitation skills by ALL ARD members, in any meeting, increases the likelihood of productive discussions and quality outcomes.
Region XIII offers training on facilitation skills, meeting management, interests-based problem solving, negotiation, mediation and consensus building. Check out our website.
