Given today’s busy schedules and time management crunches, it becomes crucial that IEP teams figure out how to work together. A simple strategy to engage in after introductions is to have each member share a quick positive experience that they’ve had with the student. Next, encourage the student to participate in his or her meeting by sharing one thing he or she really enjoys about school. This painless strategy quickly unites and reminds the team why they have gathered. For more team building strategies check out Individual Education Plan Workbook for Success.
