We will be offering three simulations – one Eligibility Meeting and two IEP Meetings. Attendees will be broken up into small groups, given a hypothetical situation and documents, assigned a role on the eligibility/IEP team to play, and participate in the mock meeting. They will be guided by a “coach,” or ISEA faculty member to provide them with feedback.
