This handbook guides special educators as they support students with disabilities in leading their own individualized education program (IEP) planning process.The authors provide examples to break the IEP development process down into the essential component parts, assuring that not only are students improving their leadership and self-determination skills but also that legal requirements for IEP development are met. There have been relatively few books that directly address the meaningful creation of an IEP and none which directly demonstrate in a step-by-step process how students with disabilities can run their own IEP meetings. This is the definitive book on showing special educators, related school personnel, students, and families how students can run their own IEPs.
