ESPED 6134 Developing IEPs in Collaboration with Schools and Families

This course focuses on the Individual Education Program (IEP) process from pre-referral to eligibility determination and placement. Key national and state legislation, progress reports, transition plans, and students who are culturally and/or linguistically diverse will be reviewed and used in the creation of two original IEPs. The development of effective interpersonal communication skills in collaborating with colleagues, families, and community agencies will be specifically analyzed and considered in all assignments.
