Accessible Educational Materials and Technologies in the IEP
This issue of NASET’s IEP Component series comes from the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials, otherwise known as the AEM Center. It provides excellent guiding questions for those involved in writing a student’s IEP. It begins by answering such basics as: What are accessible educational materials and technologies?; Why is it important for IEP teams to consider whether a student needs them in order to access the general curriculum? What does IDEA require? Where in the IEP should certain AEM-related information be included–and how? (Great examples!) The brief looks at key parts of the IEP where AEM-information can be and needs to be inserted, given the student’s particular AEM needs.
