Our initial goal was to develop a simple one page resource, or checklist, to help families prepare for an IEP meeting. But our team quickly realized – we can do more – and we did!

This project was developed by a small group of a few Apraxia Kids staff members and some incredibly dedicated volunteers, including parents and professionals from different perspectives across the country. Our goal was to consolidate and explain the IEP process in a more digestible and manageable way for families to navigate. We hope this tool helps you learn what you need to feel empowered to be the best advocate for your apraxia star!
