What is an IEP Clinic?

An IEP Clinic is a designated 1 HOUR appointment time to meet with your PEN Project Regional Coordinator. There are different ways your Regional Coordinator may assist you at an IEP Clinic. Some ways are: 

  • To learn what the ARD process is like, 
  • To review your child’s IEP, 
  • Help you determine what you want for your child and how to achieve it, 
  • Help you understand what your rights are under IDEA.

Call, text or email your Regional Coordinator to schedule your appointment!
