IEP Information Training Synopsis

All Individual Education Plans should:

Clearly define the child’s learning style, strengths, and weaknesses.

Have objective, measurable goals that the child can complete within one year.

Clearly define supports and services which enable the child to participate in the general curriculum at the fullest extent possible.

ANSWER: ALL of the Above!

As you know from going through this complete IEP information training, there’s a lot to know about IEPs. By learning all about IEPs, you can become your child’s best advocate.

Congratulations on completing the IEP Information Basic Training!

(If you landed here without coming through the training and want to know more, you can start this free IEP information training from the beginning.

To expand your understanding, you might also want to read the Interpretive Q&A information provided in IDEA Appendix A.

This is the most readable portion of IDEA and will give you a clear picture of what is required in IEPs. By reading this one Appendix, you will know far more about IDEA than most IEP meeting participants. You will be able to be an effective, helpful member of the team who is undertaking the critical task of meeting the education needs of a child.

With IDEA being reauthorized, the most recent changes to the code have not yet been made fully available in an easy, searchable format like the old regulations. For information on the current reauthorization efforts, you can go to the Council for Exceptional Children’s website and look for the “IDEA Law and Resources” link in the main menu.

If you haven’t done so already, you might want to visit our resource pages. They will provide you with long-term resources to support any situation you may encounter in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to learn IEP Information and for supporting your child in every way you can. You are the primary advocate your child has and your child needs you to be his voice.

May you lead your child to great heights academically and in life!
