Module 2 reflects DESE's requirement of background knowledge that provides development of IEP's that reflect the student's needs and services through data analysis and collaboration with stakeholders, leads, documents and evaluates IEP services. What is an Individual Education Plan? An IEP is a confidential legal document that serves as a roadmap for a student’ special education experience. It explains how the student’s disability impacts learning and covers academic goals, testing accommodations, therapy hours, transportation services, and much more. The IEP also includes detailed and data-driven information about a student’s strengths and weaknesses. Its primary purpose is to establish measurable annual goals for the student and explicitly state the special education and related services that the school will provide for, or on behalf of, the child (Center for Parent Information and Resources, 2017).
