- Make sure your draft of the IEP arrived a minimum of 24 hours in advance of your CCC.
- Note each person invited to prepare for possible requests to be excused (never the teacher or the agency rep).
- Double check that your previous concerns have been noted.
- Are the goals and objectives satisfactory, appropriate and thorough?
- Pay close attention to methods of measurement, descriptive documentation, testing, teacher reports. One method isn't enough.
- Services should be expressed as they will be delivered, ex. speech should be a weekly amount, not monthly.
- Written notes should contain all relevant information that fits nowhere else such as previous meeting notes, parent/school contact and special requests being discussed.
