An Introduction to the IEP with The Utah Parent Center

The Utah Parent Center’s mission is to help parents help their children, youth and young adults with all disabilities to live included, productive lives as members of the community. They strive to accomplish that by providing accurate information, empathetic peer support, valuable training and effective advocacy based on the concept of parents helping parents.

In this episode, we dig into the Individualized Education Program. We learn all kinds of new acronyms and get you ready for your first meeting. Jennie Dopp is a parent advocate at the Utah Parent Center. She gives us the basics in a very authentic way of understanding and utilizing the IEP.

“Working for a nonprofit, it’s about mission, none of us are in it for the money. We love what we do.”
