What Is an Individualized Education Program?

An IEP or individualized education plan is a specialized document that specifies the personalized learning needs and goals for a child with a learning challenge. The law requires this paperwork when the child attends a K-12 grade public school. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires an IEP for every child receiving special education services. Parents can work with teachers to develop an IEP to help children excel. The IEP describes the team's goals for a child during the school year and any additional support necessary to help achieve them. At Stonewater, our Nationally Accredited Boy's Private School program can help support your son's IEP while they are in dual diagnosis treatment  and recovery.

Recognizing Signs Your Teen May Need an IEP

If your child struggles with their education, you may be wondering what you can do to help them get back on track. If you have been exploring different options for struggling learners, an IEP could help them. But how do you know if an IEP is the right option for your child? Five factors are used to evaluate a child's learning challenges and determine if an IEP will benefit them.
  • Behavior problems
  • Limited English-speaking ability
  • Visual impairment
  • Hearing or communication impairment
  • A need for assistive technology or services
If you have any questions about whether your child needs an IEP, we recommend speaking to an educational or medical professional.

Who Needs an IEP?

Kids struggling in school may qualify for support services, allowing them to receive specialized support, for reasons such as:
  • Learning challenges
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Emotional disorders
  • Cognitive challenges
  • Autism
  • Hearing impairment
  • Visual impairment
  • Speech or language impairment
  • Developmental delay
  • Physical disabilities
If your child has difficulty learning and functioning and experts have identified them as a special needs student, he is the perfect candidate for an IEP.
