IEP Basics for Parents

What is An Individualized Education Plan (IEP)? An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is part of the requirements under the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA). This is a legal plan that is developed by a full IEP team. Children can only qualify for an IEP after a Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team (MET); which parents are member of, has determined that your child is (1) a child with a disability and (2) needing specially designed instruction in order to access and make progress in the general education curriculum. This plan is reviewed annually and it defines the supports and services your child will have. Follow the link to read more about IEPs.
