IEP Informational Sessions – March 29

IEP Information Sessions in New York CityAs your child enters school,  you will hear lots of terms and acronyms and one acronym, you may have heard  is IEP. So what does IEP mean. An Individualized Educational Program (IEP) describes the services and education specifically designed to meet the unique educational needs of a student with a disability. An IEP is the guiding document for a student’s educational program which includes all of the goals, objectives, present levels of performance and related services that are recommended for the student.

The process to whether your child qualifies for the IEP and/or what the forms are needed can be a  somewhat confusing and daunting process especially since the state has developed a new form to help IEP teams focus on services that are most important for your child and to reduce variation of IEP forms across the state. The new forms were developed so that the IEPs will be more individualized to each student.

The Division of Students with Disabilities and English Language Learners  is holding informational sessions on March 29 in Brooklyn for various grade levels so parents can  learn about New York City’s Special Education Reform and the Individualized Education Program (IEP).
