ARDs and the IEP

  • How much OT or PT time should I recommend for my student?

  • Can the ARD/IEP committee override my recommendations?

  • How can I advocate for my district to move toward collaborative and integrative services?

  • Can I draft IEPs for the following school year?

  • Where can I find resources supporting collaborative goals?

  • I have several questions about things that advocates have demanded (see below):

  • Should OTAs and PTAs attend ARD meetings?

  • Must frequency of services be documented in the smallest increment?

  • On the schedule of services, are we required to include specific weeks we will see a student (e.g. 30 min three times per grading period on weeks 1, 3, & 5)?
