The Plan you would be writing is called an IPE or and Individual Plan for
Employment and not an IEP or an Individual Education Plan. In most states
they want you to fill out the FAFSA to help fund your education as well as
the help that you would get from the state. Also, the FAFSA and the state
require you to at least go part time. Because generally they won't pay for
you just to take one class at a time and it would also take you forever to
receive your degree if you only did it one class at a time. Also, in order
to get Financial aid you would need to go at least part time. Which is at
least six credits.

Subject: [nabs-l] Help from anyone thaqt can assist me
Ok all. I have a slight issue here.
I have a counseler that is not wanting to work with me with my local blind
I'm in the Dallas Texas area.
What's going on is I called her the other day to ask for her assistance with
counseling as I've got some emotional issues that I'm needing help with and
can't do it on my own.
She says she needs to do a program review as I'm not doing anything that
they've trained me on, and I have made a change in plan as I want to go
back to school instead of just going back to work as finding work right now
just isn't cutting it.
I don't want to put on my iep that I'm going to school as she'll want to
cover the schooling, and I don't want to have to take 12 hours of classes.
I for me, since I've not been in school since I graduated high school, I
want to start out with 1 class at a time and go from there.
What do I do? as I have a meeting with her this Thursday.
I want to tell her exactly what I want, but not sure how to approach it
without coming across as harsh, or as a jerk.
Please let me know what to do before I have to go meet with her Thursday.
