Behavior-Focused IEP's: How Parents Can Help the IEP Team. Revised
Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities
Through educational research over the last decade, effective practices have been identified for dealing with difficult and challenging behavior in schools. Still, in too many cases, the results of this research and the practices it suggests have not reached educators at the district or building level. The purpose of this booklet is to offer parents guidance for their participation in the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) process. It provides basic information about the foundation for the development of behavior plans and the provision of special education services. In addition, it offers suggestions for participating in IEP meetings to facilitate effective planning for educational services to students with disabilities who have difficult behavior. This booklet will: (1) Give parents information about IDEA 2004 concepts that will help them protect their child's right to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE); (2) Give parents knowledge required to develop effective IEPs for students with challenging behavior; and (3) Provide an overview of current research on effective practices for addressing challenging behavior in the school setting.
