10 Things Never to Say
Croyle, Kimberly
School Administrator, v64 n9 p26-28 Oct 2007
Some individualized education plan (IEP) meetings are grueling for parents and educators alike, and too often things are said that have unintended consequences. Slips of the tongue can lead to bigger problems, such as due process hearings and complaints to the state education agency, not to mention accusations of discrimination and the legal action that follows. As an education lawyer who has spent plenty of time on special education matters, including a summer or two in due process hearings, the author has compiled 10 things one should never say during an IEP meeting and why those verbal miscues will earn an invitation to a due process hearing.
