Individualized Education Plans

If your child is struggling in school, you may request or be advised to start the process of an Individualized Education Plans (IEP). An IEP is held if a child is deemed to need additional help due to a learning disability or disorder such as Autism that may impair a childs physical ability, social interaction or communication skills.


This process can be scary for caretakers if they do not know the system or are not prepared to ask for the proper services their child may need. We have written an article about the IEP process that will guide you in this process. Remember, education is a business and unless you are ready to battle, you’ll probably come up short in your fight to get the proper services. However, if you’re prepared with knowledge or hire an advocate you stand a good chance of sucessfully navigating the system.
