Some children face greater difficulties than others in a general classroom setting. Kids with learning disabilities, sensory impairments, or behavioral disorders, for example, will sometimes struggle in the classroom.

These children can benefit greatly from an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), which addresses the unique learning needs of the student and creates a plan to help them meet educational goals in line with his skills and special needs. This one-hour course will help you understand the basic elements of an IEP, who qualifies for IEPs, and what services they might receive from them.

This course has been approved by the National Association of Social Work, Georgia Chapter (NASW-GA), for a total of 1 core continuing education clock hours for social work licensing purposes.

Not all courses are approved for early care and education in every state. Please check State and CEU Approvals page for details.
