IEPs: Guide to Writing Individualized Education Programs includes step-by-step instructions backed by examples, practice, and feedback to help users gain the critical skills and knowledge they need to write effective IEPs that meet the legal requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) of 2004. This essential resource begins with an easy-to-understand summary of IDEA. The IEP process is then broken down into seven manageable steps with explanations and opportunities for modeling and practice. Feedback for mastering each step of the process and a brief procedural summary is provided at the end of each step.

The 4th Edition aligns with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act and features new cases and sample IEPs for four students with varying circumstances; further modeling and guidance for writing present levels of academic achievement and functional performance (PLAAFP) statements; more information on measuring progress; additional detail about least restrictive environment; the impact of the Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District Supreme Court decision; and an improved and expanded chapter on transition planning.
