    I am a new teacher and will be doing IEPs within the next month. I was wondering how people go about filling in the vision statement part of the IEP. In Ohio the parents say where they see their child in the future. I was wondering if anyone sends home a questioniare and if so what kind of questions do you include.

    Thanks :)

    I teach sped. I usually fill it out at the IEP meeting. I take what the parents are saying. I also know my parents very well, so I can get a feel for what they would like. If I have it written, at the meeting we edit it to what they want.

    On my IEPs last year, there was a spot for "parental education concerns." I usually read what they had said last year (they're computerized, so i had it right there), and then ask if they have anything to add or change. I always offered them the chance to come back to it at the end, since that was about the 2nd page of the meeting!

    Hmm...I don't think I've ever seen a vision statement on any of my IEPs. I know that at the school I used to work at the high school TMH teacher had to do a type of vision statement that went along with their transition plan. She always asked the parents what they wanted, and also the student themselves. Sorry I can't be more help, but like I said, I haven't seen that on any of my IEPs. I have the parental concerns section on mine too. But I rarely have parents attend IEP meetings so all I put is "parents have not expressed concerns." Unless I know the parent has a concern.

    The Massachusetts IEP has both "parent concerns" and "vision statement"--in my meetings ,we tend to look at the "parent concerns" in the beginning of the meeting, and end by asking them their "vision"--where do you see your child in 5 years?

    I send a paper home prior to the IEP conference so they have some time to consider the idea. We have a "parent concern" section as well as a vision section and I think they get confused.

    I am not at school right now but I will try to send you some of the questions or statements that I send home prior to the meeting.
