Registration Link:

After the annual Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting, changes can be made to the IEP in certain situations. This module of the IEP Series covers: what reasons could be for revising a child’s IEP, who can request the revision, making changes to an IEP without an IEP meeting, and consideration of Extended School Year services (what they are and what determines if a child needs them).

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify reasons for revising a child’s IEP, including who can request a revision.
  • Participants will be able to recognize when IEP revisions can be made with or without an IEP meeting. 
  • Participants will be able to relate when and how the need for ESY services is determined and written in the IEP.
