If your child receives special education services, the law requires the child have an IEP. An IEP is an important legal document which spells out your child’s learning needs, the services the school will provide and how the child’s progress will be measured. An IEP can be overwhelming. Many parents struggle with their role in their child’s IEP. I found a useful link to an IEP binder on the Understood website. This is a great resource for parents to get organized and get ready for their first IEP meeting.
For more information on an IEP, check out Understanding Individualized Education Programs on the Understood website. It’s a great resource for parents or children with questions regarding their Individualized Education Program.
