The Claxton IEP Book Summary
In addition, the publication approaches the IEP process from a Christian perspective, reminding the reader to look at each IEP as an opportunity to serve a family by providing hope and a vision for the student’s education. The publication challenges administrators, service providers, and parents, to consider an IEP from a different perspective. This book reminds readers that IEP meetings need not be a time of conflict and controversy, and that writing the components of an IEP can become part of a plan for the student’s future, rather than a dreaded task to complete. The Bible is the most often referenced book. It is this perspective that makes this book unique.
The ultimate goal of the IEP is to define what specially designed instruction is neede to help students with disabilities progress and succeed in the general curriculum. It is a confidential document, designed by the members of the IEP team, which include parents, regular education teacher, special education teachers, local education agency (LEA) representatives, and other professionals, such as a school psychologist, who proceed through a series of defined steps to create the document.
IEP teams (parents, teachers, administrators, service personnel, students) design a student's educational program to ensure the student participates in and makes progress in the general curriculum.
