ARD Preparation

Preparing for Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) meeting, can be extremely stressful for families and at times families are not aware they need to prepare; therefore they attend ARD meetings ill-prepared. Many are not sure of their rights in the development of the Individual Educational Plan. This process will ensure parents/caregivers are well-prepared to advocate on the behalf of their child (ren). In some cases counselor may attend ARD meeting with parents/caregivers.
