Creating Best Practice & Compliant IEPs

by Michelle Andros

IDEA stipulates how IEPs are drafted, so that they meet minimum legal requirements.  This webinar will provide a brief overview of special education law, outline compliance indicators for writing Individualized Education Plans for students with hearing loss and discuss best practices for writing an IEP that both meets minimum compliance requirements while still maintaining a unique plan for meeting the student’s educational needs. Are you aware of those requirements and how to draft a complaint IEP?  Do your IEPs include best practices for supporting students with hearing loss?  Dive into the components of the IEP and how they should be written to meet legal requirements and created to make meaningful plans to meet the child’s unique needs.
