Developing an IEP? Use the IEP Pop-Up Tool!

Present Levels, Goals & Services, Measuring Progress, Providing Accommodations

  • Your child's IEP must include a plan to meet ALL your child’s unique needs that result from the disability.

  • The IEP should tell you exactly what the school will do to address these needs.

  • The IEP should include ways for you and your child's teachers to know if the child is making progress - if the IEP is working.

Click a box to see the answer to the question and the federal law and/or regulations that support the answer.
1. What is a PLAAFP? 2. Where does the IEP team get the information for Present Levels? 3. How can I ensure the IEP will meet my child’s needs? 4. My child has behavior problems. How do you make behavior goals measurable?

 

5. Should my child's IEP include all the services he needs? 6. My child's school says the IEP is based on what is available. Is this right?

7. What are related services in the IEP?

8. Do all children with disabilities have a right to transportation as a related service?
9. What about extracurricular activities in the IEP? 10. How will I know if my child is making progress? 11. My child is mainstreamed in regular classes. How can we ensure that he has classroom accommodations to meet his needs? 12. Should we include methodology in the IEP?
