IEP facilitation related to locus of control and conflict management issues can become necessary due to issues embedded in IEP Team makeup as a result of regulatory expectations and LEA training issues. Special education legislation originated in Massachusetts, and over the past 10 years prior learned practices in districts have had to be extinguished and new processes put in place to meet IDEA requirements and OSEP findings. This presentation will involve an overview of how practices internalized by organizations combine with regulatory expectations to move the focus from IEP development to individual agendas. To change these patterns, organizational training materials created by MA DOE and at the college level, spotlighting individual roles, responsibilities and work products to move the focus to IEP creation will be shared.
