“A memorandum is written not to inform the reader but to protect the writer.” ~Dean Acheson

… the IEP must include a statement that the child has been informed of the child’s rights under Part B of the Act … ” ~U.S. Department of Education


A statement of measurable annual goals, including academic and functional goals designed to:

  • Meet the child’s needs that result from the child’s disability to enable the child to be involved in and make progress in the general education curriculum; and
  • Meet each of the child’s other educational needs that result from the child’s disability;

~IDEA–Regulations

And today an interesting comment was left on this post.

I am working on a post on IEPs, a topic close to many of us, and will be close to others of us in the years to come! I am sure it will generate lots of input from Cinda and Barbara, and hopefully everyone on both sides of the table.

But, I need help. PLEASE leave a comment or email me with bullets bullet items on concerns or what you like or don’t like about IEPs. Please not discuss such, that will come later. I am just looking for simple concerns, or (what is the antonym of “concern” ?) unconcerns. If you want to be anonymous, just make up a name in the comments or use the contact page.

So, on to my research, and thinking about your concerns and unconcerns. And is every child teachable? Is school appropriate for every child? How do you set goals for one who is degenerative? Again, discussions later, now just give me ideas for my research, if you are so inclined. Thanks.

Oh, and pray for our washing machine. It died this weekend and I do laundry daily to keep up with Pearlsky. You should see the heap of clothes … it’s always something, no?
