Beginning to End

IEP and 504 meetings can be anxiety-provoking events! There are acronyms, policies, and laws to navigate making it feel like a parent’s voice can get lost in the mix. At Cornerstone Educational Consulting, we are happy to help you advocate for your child during IEP meetings, 504 meetings, Manifestation Determination Reviews, and any other school-based meeting. Before your child’s meeting, we will discuss to what extent you feel comfortable being the voice for your child and to what extent you’d like to let us do the talking. Either way, you can go into the meeting assured that someone is on your side to help you help your child.

IEP/504 IAP Review

A well-formulated IEP implemented with fidelity is the cornerstone of a successful educational experience.

 

If you aren’t sure if your child’s IEP or 504 IAP is as robust as it could be, submit it for review. Cornerstone Educational Consulting will review the documents, analyze for alignment with the evaluation, and make recommendations for strengthening the document and/or services provided to the student.
