Identify IEP team members, by title, who are:
- Mandated to be present under IDEA; and
- Are optional under IDEA.
Describe the required sections of an IEP, explaining what each section addresses and how it relates to the education of the individual with exceptionalities.
Part 2: Checklist Reflection
Review the “IEP Checklist” resource from this week’s readings. Pay specific attention to the “Interactions, Participation, & Communication” and the “Method of Decision Making” sections, while keeping the CEC Professional Ethical Principles in mind.
In 250-300 words, reflect upon the “FIEP: A Facilitated IEP Meeting” video, sharing observations in relation to the aforementioned sections of the “IEP Checklist” document.
- What are some of the items from the checklist in the two identified sections that you saw in the video’s mock IEP meeting?
- What skills from the checklist do you think might be difficult for you to perform?
- What could you do to help develop those skills that might be difficult for you?
Submit your summary and checklist reflection as one deliverable.
