What is an Individualized Education Program (IEP)?
An IEP is a written statement for a student with a disability that
is developed, at least annually, by a team of professionals
knowledgeable about the student and the parent(s). The plan describes
the strengths of the child and the concerns of the parents for enhancing
the education of their child, and when, where, and how often services
will be provided. The IEP is required by federal law for all exceptional
children and must include specific information about how the student
will be served and what goals he or she should be meeting.
