The paper explores aspects of an individualized educational program (IEP) for use with handicapped school age children. An IEP is defined, the target group established, and components of the IEP are outlined. Some of the philosophical and legislative background for the IEP are discussed and its place within the school district framework is examined. Steps in the planning of an IEP are enumerated and six statements limiting the scope of the IEP are offered. The components of an IEP, such as a profile statement with priority goals and short term objectives with specific evaluative conditions and criteria, are listed. Definitions from the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (Public Law 94-142) and Chapter 853 (New York State Education Law) and related services mandated by law are quoted. A sample IEP form from a local school district and a list of areas for instructional goals are included. (PHR)
