Dear Kathy,

IEP Headquarters
The Individualized Education Program (IEP) is the cornerstone of a child's special education experience. It can also be a great source of stress and confusion for the parents and teachers involved. To the rescue: We've created an IEP Headquarters on LD.org — a new section of our site that brings all of our IEP content (checklists, personal stories, videos, our new "IEP Roadmap" infographic, and more) together in one convenient place. Most of our new IEP content answers questions that you, our community, have asked us via Facebook and other avenues.

Whether your child is just being evaluated or she's had an IEP for years, you're bound to find helpful and relevant IEP information and insights here. Check it out and let us know what you think!
