I recently connected with a fellow Aspie mom who is also writing a IEP Tutorial for a graduate class. She blogs the basics of the IEP process at IEP Tutorial. For all of you out there who are new to the IEP Process, this is a great IEP 101.
She explains the terms and the practicalities of the meetings and gives a pretty accurate timeline. I recommend this blog as an IEP introductory read.
