If your child has an IEP , it can be confusing to have both an IEP meeting and a parent-teacher conference . It may feel like both cover the same ground.


But the reasons for each meeting aren’t the same. The people who come to the meeting are different. And the conversations focus on different aspects of your child’s education. Here are the differences between IEP meetings and parent-teacher conferences.
