Facilitated Individual Educational Plan (FIEP) Vignettes for Parents:
The Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services (BEESS) is proud to provide a series of short vignettes to help parents understand the benefits of using the FIEP process to enhance collaboration with IEP teams when communication is not working well.  Currently these are closed captioned in English and closed captioning in Spanish will be added soon.
