Helpful Hints: IEP

The end of summer means the return to school for many CAMPers and with it an invitation forparents/caregivers to  participate in their child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting.  An IEP is a written statement of the educational program designed to meet a child’s individual needs which every child who receives special education services must have. Parents who prepare for this all important meeting are better able to participate as a full member of the team that plans their child’s special education program.  If your CAMPer has an IEP you may find the information from the National Center for Learning Disabilities helpful as you finalize plans for the school year.
