We are happy to provide IEP resources for parents to help them improve educational experiences for their child. Learning to navigate special education is not easy. There is so much parents don’t know. It takes research, education and time which can be challenging. We want to help provide and connect parents to resources that may be helpful in the process. The more parents know about special education laws, civil rights laws and how the process works, they can have a greater impact on their child’s education and success.
Special Education – IEP’s and 504 Plans
Special education looks like many different things because it should always be specific to the child. Some children have an unseen disability such as ADHD, while others have a more noticeable disability. Regardless, an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) can help different learners and those that are disabled in school. Keep in mind that IEP services are part of FAPE (Free and Public Education) for eligible children. You man not be sure if your child is eligible for a 504 Plan or IEP, but that’s OK. We can discuss your child’s situation and determine what program best applies based on your child’s unique circumstances.
Don’t be intimidated by the words “special education”. This does not mean your child will necessarily need to be in a special class. There are so many ways special education and related services can be worked into the general education classroom your child may not even be aware they are getting extra attention. Give your child the best opportunity to thrive in school!
