Could IEP Facilitation be for you?
IEP Facilitation is a FREE service offered by the NJ Department of Education, using the services of an impartial person, who is not employed by the school district, nor the Dept of Education, who is experienced and has training with the IEP Process.
It is a voluntary service and differs from going to Mediation or a Due Process Hearing. It can help all of the IEP Team, Parents included, to better understand and develop an IEP by proposing certain goals, accommodations, therapies etc. and help reach an IEP that is mutually acceptable.
