Chalk Talk: What is an Individualized Education Program (IEP)?
The written document that makes up the IEP, Individualized Education Program, is created for public school students who qualify for special education. A group of specific individuals determine if your child has a disability and what your child needs to be successful in the general education classroom. They will then develop the IEP and update it at least once a year. This group of individuals consists of the general education teacher, a special education teacher, a specialist (i.e., speech therapist, occupational therapist), often times an administrator, and you, the parent. When appropriate, the child will attend some of the IEP meetings. Everyone is working together and will set specific goals to meet your child’s educational needs. Though the forms may vary from school to school, certain information is required by a federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA).
