IEP

What this article is about: This article provides a brief overview of the IEP process and provides links to resources where you can find more information and support.

If your child receives special education services, by law, he or she must have an Individualized Education Program (IEP). The IEP is a document that outlines your child’s learning needs, the services that the school will be required to provide and how the school will measure your child’s progress.

The process of creating an IEP involves many people, including you, the parent, and can be an overwhelming process.  Our resources will help to make this much less stressful.
