IEP Humor....

Days like today I'm convinced that IEP's are just to remind you of how much your child can not do.

I try to keep a positive out look but its so hard.  So whats the best thing you can do for stress?  Humor.

This is one of my favorites:

IEPs by Dr. Seuss

Do you like these IEPs?   I do not like these IEPs
I do not like them, Jeeze Louise, We test, we check, We plan, we meet
But nothing ever seems complete.

Would you, could you,  Like the form?

I do not like the form I see, Not page 1, not 2, or 3, Another change
A brand new box, I think we all, Have lost our rocks.

Could you all meet here or there? We could not all meet here or there.
We cannot all fit anywhere. Not in a room, Not in the hall
There seems to be no space at all.

Would you, could you meet again? I cannot meet again next week
No lunch, no prep.  Please hear me speak.
No, not at dusk. No, not at dawn at 5 pm I should be gone.

Could you hear while all speak out? Would you write the words they spout?

I could not hear, I would not write.  This does not need to be a fight.
Sign here, date there, Mark this, check that
Beware the students ad-vo-cat(e).

You do not like them, So you say
Try again! Try again! And you may.

If you will let me be, I will try again  You will see. Say!

I almost like these IEPs, I think I'll write 6003. And I will practice day and night
Until they say, "You've got it right!"
