Advanced Individual Education Assessment

The process of creating an Individual Education Plan (IEP) for a student is the foundation for compliance with IDEA. A well-written IEP utilizes a team of individuals to address the student's needs and write appropriate goals that can help to meet those needs. This class includes assessment practices, cultural and linguistic differences, individual motivation differences, and instructional arrangements to accommodate learning differences. Students will use a case-study approach to align assessment, curriculum, and instructional strategies, and will learn to balance the student's need for access to inclusive settings, and the student's need for specialized curriculum. Prerequisite: 613.
