For any parent with a special needs child, doing the best you can for him/her is a must with any stage of their development and education. Although things may be running smoothly in the meantime, considering legal assistance for a future situation is wise. You never know when a legal hurdle will present itself when it comes to your child’s academics. This is why our attorneys in McAllen are fully aware and prepared to handle cases of this nature.
What is IEP?
The individualized education program (IEP) is a clause used for children that require special education needs. It aims to help kids reach their educational potential more easily than they would on their own. In any case, the IEP is tailored to a child’s individual needs and is determined by the program’s evaluation process. It’s also very important in helping teachers, school administrators and other service providers understand what a child’s disability is and how it can hamper their educational abilities.
