IEP Components -When the IEP Team Meets
IEP teams are made up of individuals who bring different perspectives and expertise to the table. Pooling their knowledge, team members set out to craft an individualized response to a specific child’s needs, taking into account that same child’s strengths and talents. The end product is the child’s individualized education program. There’s a lot of information shared at IEP meetings, and a lot of discussion. This article, written by the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities, describes how the meeting is scheduled, who comes, and the factors team members must consider when writing an IEP. First, we’ll start with an overview of key points about IEP meetings. Then, we’ll take a longer look at specific aspects of these meetings that will help you be an active partner in this critical activity.
