The Educational Benefit IEP Reflection: Strategies for Improving Education Programs and Decision Making at the Committee on Special Education and IEP Teams professional development training package is intended to build awareness that student growth should be reflected across multiple years of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). Furthermore, it is intended to guide participants to the realization that throughout the IEP there should be indicators of how the student learns, what their needs are, and the specialized instruction that their disability requires. This training is intended for administrators, general and special education teachers, psychologists, social workers and guidance counselors.
