The IEP: Problem or Solution?
Hensgen, Caroleen
To teach a student to live his life is to give that student unlimited opportunities to be responsible for his actions, the ruminations of his mind, and the consequent actions that flow from his thinking. The only way to meet each individual child's needs is through a program geared to the student as a unique individual. The Individual Educational Program (IEP) offers such a program through its required cooperation and collaboration between the student, parents, and teachers. The process for developing an IEP involves the definition of short and long term goals and the signing of an agreement by all parties involved. (CMJ)
