Summary

Better IEPs: How to Develop Legally Correct and Educationally Useful Programs is the definitive guide to understanding, writing, implementing, and obtaining the most from IEPs. Better IEPs offers the broad perspective of professional educators who have both hands-on teaching experience and solid backgrounds in special education law. The authors present a concise and astute interpretation of the IDEA and what it means to students, parents, and educators. Since 1977, every child in the United States who has a disability and needs special education has been entitled to a free appropriate public education under a federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). In 1997, Congress amended the IDEA to:

  • Strengthen the role of parents
       
  • Increase the involvement of regular education teachers
       
  • Ensure access to the general education curriculum
       
  • Focus on teaching and learning while reducing unnecessary paperwork
       
  • Increase accommodation of racial, ethnic, and linguistic diversity
       
  • Ensure schools are safe and conducive to learning
       
  • Encourage parents and educators to resolve differences through nonadversarial means

The heart of the law is the child's written Individualized Educational Program (IEP). The purpose of Better IEPs is to give special educators, regular educators, and parents the confidence and know-how to develop IEPs that are both legally correct and educationally useful. Currently many IEPs are neither. Better IEPs is an essential reference for school administrators, advocates, special educators, and parents of children receiving special education services. It presents a powerful, three-step IEP process that focuses on the individual student and avoids the all too common routinized approach to program development. This "how-to" guide will empower IEP teams to plan for and provide an appropriate education by:

  • Following the correct sequence of identification IEP development placement
       
  • Involving parents in the IEP process
       
  • Individualizing the IEP for each student
       
  • Creating measurable goals and objectives
       
  • Addressing behavior & discipline
       
  • Specifying appropriate ways to evaluate IEP effectiveness
       
  • Complying with procedural requirements
       
  • Safeguarding students' and parents' rights under the law
