6. Talk about how it went

Meet to talk about how the strategy from Step 4 went. Discuss and plan how you might adapt or modify your practice.

Questions to guide reflection

  • What did we try?
  • What happened when we did this? How did the students respond to the strategy? How did the adults experience and respond to the strategy?
  • How might we change our practice next time?
  • What have we learned about the IEP process and how it can help students to have a say in their learning?
  • What did we do differently in our trial to encourage a student’s participation in their IEP process?
  • How did the strategy change our understanding of the student’s strengths and preferences?
  • What are we going to do next to support our students to have a say in their learning?
