This workshop will help you better understand the Individualized Education Program (IEP) for children and youth who receive special education services. When you better understand the IEP process, and how to participate, you will have a better chance of your child getting the services they need to be successful in school. 
Our goal is to help you understand the basic IEP components and how they work together, specifically:
  • The present level of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP statement);
  • Writing measurable goals and objectives;
  • Support services; and
  • Plan implementation.
