When you bring your child home from the hospital, they will have a physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy appointment within the first three weeks of their life. Children who have an IEP can receive help from many more sources than just their teachers. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the IEP process. There are two types of services that can be provided under an IEP — special education services and related services. Related services include transportation, specialized medical or psychological services, counseling services and parent training/child development programs.” The purpose of this blog is to inform parents about what exactly is included in an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), why it’s so important for children to have one by law, what happens if they don’t have one yet but need one desperately…etc.
The Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is a statement of your child’s unique educational needs.
The IEP is a statement of your child’s unique educational needs. It’s developed by the school, parents and teacher(s). The IEP is reviewed at least once a year, and it can be revised as needed to meet the student’s changing needs.
