Lindsey: Great. So I've taken all the draft pages that we've created today and put them in this document; this is the actual IEP, the Individualized Education Program, and if we all agree with this we'll pass it around and have everyone sign this last page to say that we all agree with this plan. And soon after, we will all get together and create our final draft, so we'll make it look nice and type it up on paper and send it home again and you can check it at home to make sure it was what we talked about at the meeting;
... and then this will be his plan for the upcoming year. Carmella: So, if I sign it, can I add changes to it later? Lindsey: Great question. Yes! So this is what we call a living document, so we can make changes at any time... if he passes goals early, we can get back together and come up with new goals. If we want to change something, if somethings not a priority anymore, we can get back together and change that...
... so this can be -- we can call a meeting, you can call a meeting at any time to get together and make changes. Jennifer: And the first part, way to sign is just to say that you were in attendance, so the first section that we all sign just says that we attended the meeting. The second section down here is where you have an opportunity to agree or disagree with the components of the IEP...
... so you can go down there and look and see if you agree or disagree with the IEP, but it's just like Lindsey said, is that at any point in time you can call a meeting and we can re-look at the IEP.
