** Please note that this is specific to Ontario, Canada. The IEP process in the US is a little different and may be more comparable to the IPRC process here. **
First of all, what is an IEP?
The Individual Education Plan (IEP) is a written plan for a student’s learning needs who may or may not be formally identified as “exceptional” by the IPRC (Identification, Placement and Review Committee). The IEP outlines special education programming with accommodations and/or modifications of curriculum. The plan may also include alternative programming and transition plans. An IEP is considered a “working document”, as it is revised and changed throughout the year in response to the student’s progress and needs.
