The IEP game: Lucy & the football

IEP meetings and the game of Lucy & the football have a lot in common.

  Lucy holds it perfectly in place; her finger at the tip of the ball. Charlie charges down the field; eye firmly on the target.
Charley wants to kick that football. He really wants to kick it.
And just as he races forward and starts to kick —  Lucy snatches the ball away —
Charlie does a half-gainer and lands flat on his back on the ground.

LUCY NEVER DID SAY WHY -

BUT WE CAN IMAGINE WHAT SHE MIGHT HAVE SAID.

  • Holding the ball any longer is against policy -x
    • We held the ball. It was up to you kick it before time ran out -
    • You’re on the second team. You don’t qualify for the best ball holding-
    • SOUND FAMILIAR?

      Just when you thought you had everything in place, your IEP meeting all planned, and a draft IEP in your hand, the school district pulls what you thought you had right out from under you.

      HOW DO YOU STOP THE GAME?

      By dealing with the school with a velvet hammer.
      It’s a whole new level of advanced IEP advocacy built on a solid foundation of ethical and practical tactics and strategies.

      THE GOOD NEWS is that you will not have to pack your bags and trudge off to yet another weekend Special Education workshop to learn how to do it.
      So that’s the good news.

      WHAT’S THE BAD NEWS?
      There is no bad news.  Reasonable fees, no hidden costs, no surprises.
      I’LL ADMIT THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. It is intended for parents who are facing tough issues with a non-compliant school district.

      IS THIS METHOD REVOLUTIONARY? Not exactly.   Here’s the story.
