Understanding the IEP
The IEP can process can be confusing and intimidating. Our goal is to help make it understandable and approachable.
For many families, navigating through the IEP process is like going to a foreign land without a map. The territory is unfamiliar and the language can feel strange and difficult to understand.
Understanding the IEP is an evolving program here at Healthy Minds Consulting where we will break down the IEP document itself as well as the process around it to help families and professionals alike understand what it is and how it works. Using a combination of articles, graphics and illustrations, and trainings and presentations, we are working to explain the most common questions asked and to make what is often an imposing process accessible and collaborative.
From this section of our site we will, over time, link to pages and articles that provide information specific to breaking down the IEP into bite-sized pieces. If you have any questions about the IEP or topics you would like us to consider including in future materials, contact us and we will consider adding them to future content.
Below is where we are collecting the pieces to support you in navigating the IEP process and finding your path to an effective and appropriate IEP document for you and your student.
