Before looking at your child’s IEP, you should read the evaluations and evaluation reports because they form the foundation for building an IEP. Do the evaluation and assessment results make sense with what you know about your child and their abilities? Do they describe your child’s strengths as well as areas of need? Then take a piece of paper and fold it in half the long way. On one side, list all the areas of need identified and recommendations listed in the evaluations and assessments. On the other side, list the goals, objectives, modifications or accommodations, strategies, etc. that address that area of need. Are they all addressed? Are the recommendations being used in the IEP? Here are some other questions to ask in reviewing your child’s IEP.
