The Student "Draft IEP" Tool at WIHD UCEDD/LEND

WIHD has updated its popular Student "Draft IEP" Tool (http://hvsepc.org/student-draft-iep-interactive-tool/). The tool, developed by Naomi Brickel, helps students to prepare information for IEP development and generate their own "draft IEP" to share with the rest of the IEP team. This serves to increase student understanding of the IEP process and facilitates student participation in IEP discussions. Research indicates that students who are involved in their special education program planning are more successful in school. However, many students do not even attend their IEP meetings, and of those who do, few participate in a meaningful way.
