Each child found eligible for special education must have a current Individualized Education Program (IEP) in place at the beginning of every school year. This module continues from Writing the IEP-Part 1 and covers the first two sections of the IEP document: Section I. Student Information (student strengths; present levels of academic and functional performance; special factors; parent/student concerns; effects of disability; disability-related needs), and Section II. Parent Engagement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to recognize important components of the IEP Student Information section.
  • Participants will be able to determine where and how the IEP can include parent and student concerns.
  • Participants will be able to identify how the IEP can include ways to engage families in their child’s IEP.
