What should I expect at an IEP meeting?

Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings give you and the school a chance to work together to design an IEP for your child. The IEP is a written document designed to meet your child's individual learning needs. The IEP is created through a team effort and reviewed every year. It is not a contract, but it does guarantee the necessary supports and services to be provided.

The goals for your child are the core of the IEP. As a parent you play an important role in developing the goals that represent what you and other IEP team members think your child will be able to do in a year's time. Goals must be written so the teacher can monitor progress by using data. The specially designed instruction used to achieve the goals should be research-based.
