IEP Dirigido por Estudiantes

Los estudiantes son a menudo sus mejores defensores. No en vano, con frecuencia son ellos los que mejor saben lo que necesitan y quieren. Esta presentación compartirá estrategias para ayudar a los estudiantes a presentar y asumir más responsabilidad durante la mayor parte del proceso. Un IEP dirigido por un estudiante es un IEP en el que el estudiante con una discapacidad participó en la redacción y creación de cualquier parte del IEP y/o desempeñó un papel de liderazgo durante la reunión del IEP real.
