The IEP Parent Involvement Training Guide.
Canning, Jean; And Others
Methods and materials for training parents to become involved in the development of an individualized educational program (IEP) for their handicapped children are presented. An introductory section details the goals and objectives of the program, describes parent involvement, and discusses the use of the training guide. Six training units explore the following topics (sample activities in parentheses): (1) getting acquainted (introductions), (2) IEP and the law (review of federal laws and New Jersey state regulations), (3) understanding IEP terms (glossary puzzle), (4) the IEP in the local special education process (review of the process), (5) anatomy of an IEP (IEP self evaluation), and (6) at the IEP meeting (ways to prepare and suggestions for participation). Each section has an introduction and a form for evaluating the unit. A list of annotated references on the laws regarding IEPs are included. (PHR)
