Individualized Education Profiles (IEPs)

"The IEP process is the centerpiece, the heart and soul, of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA). It is the procedure for devising the "Free Appropriate Public Education" to which every eligible child who has a disability and needs special education is entitled. To fully appreciate the role of the IEP process one needs to review it briefly in the context of the whole IDEA schema." Barbara D. Bateman, Better IEP Meetings 1992-1996 (this quote from a previous version of this book)
