Individualized Educational Plan

The federal law, Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), requires that school create an IEP for every learner receiving special education services. The IEP, a binding document, is meant to address each learner’s unique learning issues and include specific educational goals. Before an IEP is written for a learner with a disability, a doctor, facilitator, family, and student support must determine whether the learner qualifies for special education services.
