An IEP is drawn up by the class teacher to help the parent and the school identify the child's needs and to target areas of particular difficulty. It should show the steps that are to be taken to support the child's learning and set a date for reviewing progress. The IEP should give details of:
- learning targets for the child to reach in a given time
- who will support the child and how that support will be organised
- what materials and methods should be used
- how success in the target will be measured
- what contribution a parent can make
The plan should be discussed with the child and a copy of it should be given to the parent. The parent will be invited to give their views at the meeting held to review the progress made under the current plan and set targets for the next IEP.
At School Action Plus the IEP should reflect the advice given by the specialists who have been consulted.
