IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PLAN
Fritz & O'Hare Associates received funding from the Nebraska Planning Council on Developmental Disabilities to create informational materials to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families understand their role in the IEP and the ISP. They created 4 modules called It's All About The Plan! that are each accompanied by guidebooks that are wonderful at helping families understand how to participate in the process.
The Arc of Lincoln has been working to spread the word about these wonderful tools, and we recommend anyone that may take part in an IEP or ISP watch the appropriate video by clicking the link below. We would also recommend doing the guidebooks. Please feel free to pass these around.
