  • A plan that shows how the classroom programme will be adapted to fit the child – using their strengths to enhance their learning abilities
  • A plan that brings together the child’s learning needs, aspirations, personality and cultural background
  • An outline of where the students are going and what their successes might look like
  • It is a living document – it is regularly updated to reflect the child’s changing development

When does a child need an IEP?

IEP’s are necessary when:

  • Additional teaching strategies are needed to address a student’s particular learning needs
  • The programme needs to be differentiated
  • Barriers to learning have been identified, requiring adaptations to regular teaching strategies
  • Times of transition require extra attentions to planning, teaching and learning
  • Implement a school monitoring system
  • Support parents, children and teachers
  • Physical, social, emotional and academic
  • Transitions into school, between classrooms and into high school
  • Transferring important information of children year to year and to high schools
