Have you ever been sitting at the IEP table and felt so nervous you could barely speak?

Been there, done that!

During my first few years as a special educator, I would sit at the table during IEP meetings and feel incredibly intimidated and worried I would say something wrong. I don’t want you to feel the same way I did, so I am sharing two quick action steps to help you feel confident at your next IEP meeting!

Whether you’ve been part of 50 IEP meetings or 5, nerves can still get the best of you. I want to help you feel confident to communicate your input at your future IEP meetings.

In this episode, I am sharing how the IEP meetings during my first few years went, what I did to become more confident in IEP meetings, and two action steps for you to take to become a confident communicator in your next meeting.
