Individual Education Plans [IEP] have been key to supporting learning for children with diverse needs for decades and they remain an essential tool for school teams and families. This two-day workshop will focus on how IEP’s can be used most effectively to support students with autism and related developmental disabilities.

Primary consideration will be given to IEP design and implementation with case examples from kindergarten through high school. Topics will include correcting misconceptions about the role of IEP’s and the importance of building collaborative teams.

The goal of these two days is to give parents an understanding the IEP process from A to Z, including knowing where you are and where you are going: 

  • Assessing “present level” and developing meaningful goals;
  • Selecting effective instructional methods;
  • Accountability: measurement of student achievement and IEP effectiveness.

This presentation will be particularly relevant to parents whose children are in the British Columbia education system, however, the need for evidence-based IEPs is a standard widely accepted internationally.
