I do think parents need to hear positive things in the IEP. They're so used to hearing what their children can't do and how low they are in comparison to everyone else. I usually start by saying how much I enjoy working with the child, which is true for about 95% of my students. I don't say that if it's not true, but I will state their strengths. Now, I agree that we must talk about weaknesses. If there were no weaknesses, the child wouldn't have an IEP. I think it's best to state the weaknesses very matter-of-fact, and possible ways to help the student improve. What drives me nuts is when the IEP becomes a complaining fest instead of a team effort to help the student.
