Guide to the IEP Process

What is an IEP?
The IEP, Individualized Education Program, is a written document that's developed for each public school child who is eligible for special education.  The IEP is created through a team effort and reviewed at least once a year.  Before an IEP can be written, your child must be eligible for special education.  By federal law, a multidisciplinary team must determine that your child 1) has a disability and 2) requires special education and related services to benefit from the general education program.
