School-aged children who qualify for special education have an IEP. Learn what an IEP is, how it is administered, and more.

What is an IEP?

IEP stands for Individual Education Program. School-aged children who qualify for special education services will receive an IEP. It is developed by your child’s education team, you and your child (when appropriate).

IEP describes the goals the team sets for the child for the school year and outlines support services needed to reach those goals.

  • NICHCY’s IEP overview will help if you are getting ready for your child’s first IEP. It includes information about what to expect at the IEP meeting and what happens after.
