Have you attended an IEP meeting lately where it seemed like there was a hidden agenda and you weren't told what it was? You must read up on the Delphi and Alinski Techniques and learn how to diffuse them. This technique is being used frequently to achieve consensus at IEP meetings and at community meetings that are used to set school board policy. If you do not understand how these are used to achieve "consensus" - i.e. make everyone agree on a hidden agenda - you may not fully understand why IEP meetings do not go the way you intend them to go.
