Clear, helpful answers for educators involved in developing Individualized Education Programs.

Creating and evaluating Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for students with disabilities is a major responsibility for teachers and school leaders, yet the process involves legal components not always understood by educators. In Understanding, Developing, and Writing Effective IEPs, legal and special education experts Roger Pierangelo and George Giuliani provide K–12 educators with a clear step-by-step plan for IEP development that helps guarantee a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restricted Environment (LRE) for students with disabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions and a glossary of easy-to-understand special education terminology enable every member of the IEP team to develop a meaningful, functional program that meets a student′s unique needs. Aligned with the latest reauthorization of IDEA 2004, this practical resource also includes:

  • Descriptions of the IEP process
  • Sample materials from authentic IEPs
  • Checklists, forms, and reproducibles for planning an effective IEP meeting
  • Guidelines that encourage positive collaboration between educators and families

Ideal for teachers and administrators, this jargon-free text provides techniques, suggestions, and information for all aspects of the IEP process.
