An Attitudinal Study: Perceptions of Teachers, Parents and Public School Stakeholders Concerning the IEP Process and Development
Carter, Emanuel; Wilson, Carolyn H.
Online Submission
The Individual Education Plan (IEP) process plays a vital role in the instructional process of the individual with ELN (exceptional leaning needs). The IEP process helps to level the playing field for students with ELN against those students that do not have diagnosed learning problems. From the parents to the students to the IEP staff, they all play a vital role in developing an individual plan for the success for the students with ELN. This study will investigate the perception that the IEP staff has on the parents who are involved with the IEP process. The perceptions will not only come from just the student's teacher, but also from administrators, and counselors. This is an important topic because the IEP process was implemented from government legislative, to make sure all students who have a diagnosed ELN receive a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment. The findings in this study can be used in the future of education to improve the relationship between parents and stakeholders that are involved in the IEP process. A survey is appended.
