Hi all. My DS has just started school and we were given his 1st IEP last week. I have never seen one before but it looks a bit rubbish to me. 1st question is should we have been involved with helping to write it?

The targets are:
DS to learn names of classroom staff, DS to learn the names of the children in his class and join in the routines of the day.
DS to continue to use makaton, gradually extending the signs he can use.
DS to use jolly phonics to learn set 1 sounds and actions.

We are responsible or actioning these along with the teaching staff but I am not sure how we can really do that unless we get a bit more info about what they are doing.
DS can talk quite well and hasn't really used makaton much for about 6 months so not sure about why this is there. Also his SALT hasn't seen him at school yet. Also his main issue at the moment is fine motor skills which aren't even mentioned. The teacher said the ot hadn't been in but I have spoken to her and she has.

They are set for review in march so not overly worried about them.

So is this normal? Any advice about getting a better IEP?

So you think this looks a bit rubbish too polter? Have you been asked to be involved with your previous IEPs or did they just get handed to you? I am happy to do one myself but don't want to annoy the teacher too much this early on!

Thanks polter. You are right. My DS is more important and I need to pursue his best interests. Luckily his TA is wonderful and has 2 children with special needs herself so totally understands my point of view.
