IEP Compliance

IEP Compliance

IEP compliance is never a matter to be considered lightly. This course gives you a thorough grounding on how to create effective, compliant IEP’s. For example, the course details the importance of confidentiality under FERPA law and who should know about the contents of a particular IEP. The IEP process of information flow is described including explanations about the team involved and the document itself. You’ll also benefit from a better understanding on IEP content including present levels, goals, progress reporting, accommodations, participation with peers, transition planning (if applicable) and transfer of IDEA rights. The course concludes with a recap of key points for IEP development, odds and ends, and when an IEP must be in place.
