Families of students with disabilities may need guidance on what should be in their child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). Even experienced parents can benefit from a summary of what should be included in this important document. This article discusses the required components of the IEP, the IEP team, and consideration of the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) for the child. Families may also wish to contact their parent center (see Resources, p.45).
