When There Are Conflicts Regarding An Individual Education Plan
Individual education plans, or IEPs, are put in place to help teachers and students alike. Unfortunately, when a child is assessed incorrectly or when a teacher does not understand the full extent of the IEP, conflicts can arise that can cause students to be labeled “bad kids” and teachers to be reprimanded for inappropriate behavior, all due to a misunderstanding.

I Am Dealing With An IEP Conflict, What Do I Do?
Many teachers and non-instructional staff find themselves being reprimanded or even suspended because they were unaware of all of the information included in the IEP, or because the child in question was not assessed correctly and his or her behavioral issues were not addressed.
Steve Rossi can help you defend your reputation as a teacher and find a solution that works for you, for the school and for the child and his or her parents. Frequently, this is done through negotiation with all parties. If the issue results in certification suspension or job loss, Mr. Rossi can represent you or guide you through the process of an appeal.
