Getting services at school starts with evaluation. Eligible students get an individualized Education Program (IEP), which describes a student’s present levels of performance and how specially designed instruction supports progress toward annual goals.
This article provides a quick overview of the basic IEP process and provides tips for family caregivers to get more involved. PAVE offers a downloadable PDF of these materials. The handout can be used to generate written suggestions to share with an IEP team.
