Why do Facilitated IEP meetings generate better student results?
ARD/IEP meetings benefit from skilled and capable facilitators who can assist the team in crafting agreements that lead to better educational programs for students with disabilities. Facilitation makes the meeting process easier and helps team members communicate and solve problems more effectively. Every team member, parent, and school personnel can use facilitation to improve the process and outcome.
Watch this video of an IEP meeting demonstrating the use of facilitation skills and techniques to learn how you too can implement these valuable and effective skills/techniques. Free tools and resources have been developed to help ensure your next IEP meeting is the best one yet.
