Helping Students Develop Their IEPs. Technical Assistance Guide, Volume 2.
This guide (with audiotape) offers information on helping students with disabilities become involved in developing their own Individualized Education Programs (IEP). The guide is organized into lesson plans which can be adapted to individual situations. Individual lessons focus on the following topics: (1) introductory work with students (such as talking about disabilities, relevant laws, and transition); (2) introducing the IEP (helping students look at and understand their own IEPs); (3) writing the IEP (focusing on students' present levels of functioning and goals); (4) getting ready for the IEP meeting; (5) participating in the IEP meeting; and (6) following up after the meeting. Appendices provide additional information on relevant laws, answers to a disability pre-test, and an outline of a presentation on the laws. A glossary and a list of 18 resources are also provided. The accompanying audiocassette presents teachers and parents discussing how they have helped students become active participants in the IEP process. (DB)
