Summary

The Madison United IEP Parent Support Program aims to provide support and advocacy to the parents and all kinds of caregivers of students with disabilities in the MMSD special education community. The program's objective is to bring these individuals together to share resources, ideas, and feedback to improve the Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for their students and create a better learning environment.

Description of Services

We understand that being a caregiver can be tough, especially when it comes to supporting your student's education. That's why we're here to help connect you with other caregivers who are going through similar experiences. We'll match you with other caregivers based on your student's age, IEP classification, and school (if possible). Then, you'll be able to exchange emails and offer each other support, resources, and an open line of communication. You can sign up as either a "Support Parent" or a "Match Parent". If you're a Support Parent, you'll mentor another caregiver. If you're a Match Parent, you'll receive support from another caregiver.
