The Purpose of the IEP Guide
An IEP is an Individualized Education Plan. It is a legal document between you and the school that outlines how to best help your child to learn in the way that is best for them.
Parents often feel frustrated and overwhelmed when their child is having difficulties in school. And it is okay to have these feeling because all parents do. What is important is to make sure you are taking the necessary steps to help them with any difficulties that they are having. To do this, you have to learn what an IEP is and how this document can help your child succeed in school.
In this IEP Guide, you learn about:
• the components of an IEP
• what to do before an IEP meeting
• whether you should hire an advocate or attorney
• what happens after an IEP meeting
