Getting Involved in the IEP Process
Kowalski, Ellen; Lieberman, Lauren J.; Daggett, Sara
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v77 n7 p35-39 Sep 2006
Although, in many districts, physical educators are integral members of the Individualized Education Program (designed for students with disabilities such as Down syndrome and autism), in other districts, physical educators are only partially involved in the process or are not given the opportunity to be involved at all. However, the physical educator can provide more well-rounded assessments because they see the student involved in all three domains: the affective, the cognitive, and the psychomotor. By following the ideas outlined in this article, the physical educator who provides direct service to children with disabilities can have a rich, positive experience as part of the IEP team.
