Session 2: How to make IEP team meetings work!
When planning for children with special needs, it is important that the IEP team meetings go well. When they do, children are more likely to be successful. This workshop is designed to help the IEP team prevent conflict early-on and effectively manage it when it arises. Team members can use these skills to help evaluate their own interactions as well as offer ideas for improving teamfunctioning. The workshop will cover:

  •  Understanding conflict in teams
  • Conflict indicators
  • Preventative strategies to manage conflict
  • Meeting planning tips 
  • Facilitation tips and behaviors
  • Setting a meeting agenda
  • Post-meeting considerations
