My son’s first IEP was a nightmare.
I was ill prepared, and I had NO IDEA WHAT THEY WERE SAYING.
I mean, they might as well have been speaking a foreign language.
So. Many. Acronyms.
I couldn’t keep up.
The next day, as I was attempting to organize the 2.5 million pages of paperwork, I tried to make myself an acronym dictionary. I spent three hours bouncing from one website to another. I couldn’t find one resource that had it all. I needed an ultimate list of special education acronyms.
So I made one.
Here it is.
On the last page, you’ll find a few links that I have found helpful. Links that I have bookmarked and gone back to more than a few times.
See, when I started this journey, I didn’t know what The Individuals with Disabilities Act was all about.
I do now.
You should too.
I didn’t know about the website Wright’s Law. I have come to know it as a faithful friend.
I hope you will find this guidebook helpful. If you have any questions, please ask!
I still have a lot to learn, but there is one thing that I know for sure.
Parents in the special needs community can always depend on one another for help!
