Education is full of acronyms and IEP is one of many that a parent/guardian of a child receiving special education support will encounter.
An IEP is an Individual Education Plan. Developed at the beginning of the school year, it lays out the accommodations and modifications to the regular curriculum that help your child learn and be successful. No formal identification is needed but you, the parent/guardian should be involved in the development as you provide valuable input. It can be overwhelming so there are pamphlets, webpages, and Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) representatives who can help you understand and make informed contributions.
May is Better Speech and Hearing Month. Let's thank the professionals who help our children with their speech and language challenges.
