Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Individualized Education Program (IEP) specifies the educational support and services necessary for a student to learn based on his/her special needs. Each IEP is created by an IEP team typically consisting of the school administrator, general education and special education teacher, the student’s parent(s), the student (when appropriate), and other special education service providers, such as a psychologist and/or behaviorist. Become familiar with the fundamental principles of the IEP process and the specific role they play in its implementation. Using case study examples, IDEA analysis, and interactive exercises, learn how to develop and implement an appropriate IEP plan for qualifying students attending K – 12 public educational programs. This course is text and video based. It is comprised of 5 lessons with quizzes and a final exam, which must be passed by a score of at least 80% to earn CE credit.  The quizzes and final exam may be repeated as necessary.
