IEPs are created, evaluated or changed at least once per year. Many times, meetings to discuss IEPs are held more often than this. The goal of these meetings is to create a plan that helps the special needs child succeed to the fullest limits of their capabilities. During meetings, both parents and educators will be able to bring forward their concerns, and team members will discuss these and make changes to the IEP. Parents who need more help understanding this process or who are looking for legal representation can contact Newman, Aaronson, Vanaman for advice or legal counsel.
