Have you ever sat in an ARD meeting at a school, and not known what you “could” say?  This presentation will be an overview of various parts of the IEP and how an attending BCBA can effectively contribute to the development of an educational plan.  We will identify the critical components of an IEP, their purpose, and what you want to see and advocate for in each area.
