As a school board attorney and father of a profoundly autistic son, the author shares his perspective on the miscommunications and conflicts that often arise in the development of IEPs for children with autism. Educators, administrators and attorneys approach the IEP process with a deep understanding of the law and pedagogy, and a deep desire to see that the needs of the child are met. The child’s parents come to the process with a deep understanding of their child, and unique burdens; they can have serious misconceptions regarding the goals and objectives of educators. Very often, therefore, educators and parents seem to be discussing different issues and pursuing different goals.
