The work and dedication associated with effectively advocating for your child does not end at the conclusion of a PPT meeting. In fact, what you do after a PPT meeting is just as critical as what you do during a PPT meeting. That’s because in order to effectively advocate for your child, you must strive to maintain an accurate paper trail of all of your dealings with the school district. First, be sure to review the Individualized Education Program (IEP) received from the school for accuracy. Review the IEP in detail to ensure the document reflects all requests and issues that were discussed, proposed, agreed to, and/or rejected at the PPT meeting. Remember, it is critical to make sure you voice your concerns and disagreement at each and every PPT meeting. Parents and students have the right to be meaningful participants in the PPT process. Second, if you feel that the IEP is not accurate, take the time to draft a document that reflects your understanding of what transpired at the PPT meeting and send it to the appropriate school officials. Request that this follow-up document become an addendum to the IEP, or at the very least, part of your child’s file.
