Individualized Educational Programs or IEPs are the road maps that outline the services a student with special needs will receive. They indicate the educational goals for the students. Members of the IEP team collaboratively create and revise IEPs. This team includes, but is not limited to the student when appropriate, special education teacher(s), general education teacher(s), appropriate related service personnel (e.g. speech and language pathologist, occupational therapist), and a local education agency representative (LEA).
