Developing a Bilingual Individual Education Plan for Language Minority Students.
Langdon, Henriette; Parker, Dennis
Requirements for individualized plans of instruction for special education students are discussed separately and a description of a combined plan is offered. The individualized education program (IEP) is reviewed in terms of identification and referral, development of the assessment plan, assessment, development and implementation of the IEP, IEP content, and due process provisions. Similarly, minimum content requirements of the individual learning plan (ILP), required for limited English proficient (LEP) students in California, are reviewed. Approaches for merging the IEP and ILP process/content for handicapped LEP students include identification assessment in English but the diagnostic assessment in the primary language, designation of the pupil's strongest language for basic skills/subject matter instruction, and sufficient bilingual teachers and aides.
