What should I include in a letter of parent concerns before an IEP?

Published: Mar. 9, 2022Updated: Mar. 17, 2022

List what you perceive are your child’s areas of need that have and have not been addressed in their IEP, such as social skills, communication skills and/or speech delay, gross or fine motor skills, or academic skills like reading and math fluency. Highlight your child’s areas of strength and what strategies have been successful at home. This can help the team at school craft accommodations that more accurately fit your child’s needs. Point out strategies that have not worked and how they might be altered.
