Center for Appropriate Dispute Resolution in Special Education
"We review literature here to explore findings from 10 studies published after 2004 that focus on the experiences and perceptions of parents or other caregivers related to the IEP process. Our objective is to highlight recommendations from this body of literature for improving the experiences of parents and encouraging their participation in IEP meetings."
