An Individualized Education Plan serves as a blueprint for learners who are eligible for special education services. English Language Leaners who also qualify for an IEP are a unique group of students who require specialized instruction and highly trained educators who understand their diverse needs. Placing students into special education programs is framed within a multi-tiered model that serves as a foundation of IEP development. Our course helps to guide educators in the development and implementation of Individualized Education Plans for diverse learners.
