Training IEP Meeting Participants for Family-Friendly and Culturally Competent IEPs Using Simulations

This presentation will begin with a brief review of recent research on the barriers facing culturally and linguistically diverse families as they navigate the IEP process. Attendees will have an opportunity to share how the research reflects or differs from their own experiences working with families in the field. Next, they will learn about frameworks for conceptualizing culture and identity as means for reflecting and acting on these important aspects of partnership with all families. Finally, participants will learn about and discuss how simulated meetings can serve as a context to practice facilitating family-friendly, culturally responsive IEPs.
