This booklet is intended to facilitate the full participation of Minnesota parents of children with disabilities in the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process. The booklet begins with a brief discussion of what an IEP is and why it is needed. The guide then presents a copy of Minnesota's IEP form, with the form sections on the left hand page and explanatory information on the right hand page. Some of the categories of information explained are: parent/guardian information, the IEP meeting, program planning, periodic review of the IEP, transition program planning, adaptations in general and special education, behavioral interventions, special education and related services to meet goals and objectives, interagency services, the altered school day, placement determination and the least restrictive environment, activities with students without disabilities, and primary disability.
