IEP. Individualized Education Plan. Teachers and clinicians create this legal document for students with special learning needs, detailing specially designed instruction, testing accommodations, and goals. What is delineated in the paperwork determines the parameters of support for each student–the how, when, and where of what will be done to meet the student’s needs. The IEP is the ‘bible’ as I do my work as a paraprofessional in Special Education.
