What is FIEP?

What is a Facilitated IEP (FIEP)?

A Facilitated IEP (FIEP) is an option available at the request of schools and parents for conflict prevention and resolution. This service is provided at no cost to parents or schools.  A trained impartial professional (facilitator) helps the case conference committee with the IEP process by:

  • Keeping the meeting focused on the student
  • Ensuring everyone at the table has a voice
  • Encouraging active listening by all participants
  • Helping keep team members on task and within the time allotted for the meeting
  • Participating as a non-committee member, which does not impose decisions on the group
