What a Good IEP Looks Like

Website: speedchange.blogspot.com

The IEP has been around since mandated by IDEA and has changed many times since its inception. The qualities of IEPs vary depending on the district and on the team that writes them. This blog was initially intended to write about the components of a good IEP. The author stresses the need to highlight student strengths in "Present Level Performance" areas instead of writing only about weaknesses or test scores, with the thought that one can build on strengths. He also encourages educators to look closely at each individual instead of just inserting global accommodations. This blog is thought provoking and should be read by all who are involved in contributing to IEPs.
