Process
 Use the checklist to guide your discussion.
 Remember what we have talked about in class over the

past few weeks. Think carefully about what you say and recommend.  You may also use the IEP you developed for homework to assist you in your discussion.
 I will type in the IEP form as you discuss things.
 Our end result will be a completed IEP.

 At the end of the meeting, our observers will debrief

us on their observations.
 We will discuss the meeting itself – what went well and

what didn’t.

Now on to the meeting!
Daniel Lougen is a 6 year old first grade student showing some learning difficulties.
