When the IEP Team Meets (Links updated, March 2017) (English and Spanish) (Center for Parent Information & Resources, CPIR)
This article describes how the IEP meeting is scheduled, who comes, and the special factors that team members must consider when writing an IEP.
IEP teams are made up of individuals who bring different perspectives and expertise to the table. Pooling their knowledge, team members set out to craft an individualized response to a specific child’s needs, taking into account that same child’s strengths and talents. There’s a lot of information shared at IEP meetings, and a lot of discussion. The end product is the child’s individualized education program.
