Who is responsible for IEP goals?
from By: Pamela Hill
As the beginning of autumn appears, public school is well underway for the more than 2 million students identified with learning disabilities in the United States. These students are being instructed by teachers whose responsibility is to assist them in meeting their Individual Education Plan goals. The IEP was first introduced in 1975 as part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The individualized education goals are a pivotal part of this legal document and are crucial to the student's success. Was it the intent of the designers of this document that decisions and educational goals be made for the student or with the student?
