Individual Education Plans (IEP)

An Individual Education Plan (IEP) is a customised educational program designed to meet the unique needs of a student who has learning difficulties, disabilities, or other special educational needs. It outlines specific learning goals, the services the student will receive, and how progress will be measured.

The key components of an IEP typically include:

  • Current Performance: A description of the student's current academic and functional performance.
  • Goals: Specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals for the student to achieve over a set period.
  • Services and Support: Detailed information on the special education services, related services, and support the student will receive, such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, or classroom accommodations.
  • Participation: Information on the extent to which the student will participate in regular education classes and activities.
  • Progress Monitoring: Methods for tracking and reporting the student's progress toward meeting the goals.
  • Transition Planning: For older students, the IEP includes plans for transitioning from school to post-school activities, such as higher education, vocational training, or employment.
