“Developing Legally Defensible IEP’s”
The U.S. Supreme Court has referred to the Individualized Education Program (IEP) as the "modus operandi" for the provision of FAPE to students with disabilities. In accordance with the Court's two-pronged test for determining whether an IEP is appropriate, hearing officers and courts will look to both the procedural and substantive components of the IEP. Julie will examine and explain many common pitfalls that educators must avoid-both procedurally and substantively-in an effort to ensure that IEPs are legally defensible.
