The start of each school year is an exciting -- and stressful -- time for kids with autism and for their families. Everyone looks forward to getting back into regular routines, but there might be some anxiety about new teachers, classmates, and, in some cases, a brand-new school.
Goodwin Procter LLP partnered with Autism Speaks to put together a guide (Individualized Education Program (IEP): Summary, Process and Practical Tips) to help families understand the IEP process for back-to-school time. This 26 page guide contains an IEP timeline and clearly lays out the steps to take throughout the IEP process. Find tips, resources, and answers to FAQs.
