Dear Kathy,

7 IEP Tips and Advice Everyone's Individualized Education Program (IEP) journey is different, which is why we've spent the last month gathering a variety of perspectives on the good, the bad, and the ugly of IEPs. Parent contributor Ellyn Levy, whose daughter received her first IEP when she was a junior in high school, has seven more IEP tips.

Here's one of her tips:

"Your child is an individual—and the IEP should be individual too! Perhaps your child needs an accommodation like a scribe in the classroom, special seating, extended test time, or a quiet space to take a test. Make sure whatever works best for your child is spelled out in his or her IEP, and that the accommodations offered aren't just generic or pre-written."

Check out Ellyn's latest blog post to find out her other six tips. And don't forget to visit's IEP Headquarters to access our IEP checklist, learn about terms like "PLAAFP" and "PLOP," and hear more from other parents, students, and teachers who are on the IEP journey.
