For this assignment, you will need to first locate the IEP form that is used in your district or state. Many entities provide this form on their website or you may need to contact a Special Education professional in your state. If you cannot locate an IEP form, you may use one from another state or create your own, but it must include all key areas as listed in the case studies.
Make sure that the selected form includes places for the following components:
Cover Page: General information about the student and a place to identify those individuals who will participate in the development of the IEP.
Present Level of Educational Performance. Use the information in the case study as a starting point. You may add additional information about this fictitious student, if needed, as long as it is consistent with the given profile.
Measurable Annual Goals with Short-Term Objectives or Benchmarks. Make sure to include at least one academic and one functional goal for the selected student.
Accommodations/Modifications and Participation in State and District-Wide Assessments
Placement in the Least Restrictive Environment
Secondary Transition (if selecting the secondary case study)
After locating your district or state form, you will select one of the two case studies provided in the document Fictitious Student Assessment Data and IEP Development located within your weekly resources. Review the data provided in the selected case study and then develop an IEP using the case study and the additional information listed on the attachment. After you complete the IEP, write a narrative explaining the choices that you made for this student when developing the IEP.
Length: will depend on your selected IEP form but will generally range between 5 and 15 pages. Analysis of your IEP will be 2-3 pages, not including title and reference pages.
