Individualized Education Program: A Presentation for Families

The purpose of this project was to create a research-based presentation for parents of all backgrounds that provides them with an overview of the components of a child’s Individual Education Program (IEP) for children eligible for special education. The presentation is intended not only to provide parents with and an understanding of the content and meaning of the elements included in a child’s IEP, the IEP process, and parental and student rights regarding special education services, but also to achieve an overarching goal of empowering parents with knowledge to encourage their meaningful involvement in their child’s education program.
