Hot off the press, Drs. Mitchell L. Yell, David F. Bateman and our own James (Jim) Shriner have written a new book: Developing Educationally Meaningful and Legally Sound IEPs
The purpose of the book is to assist readers to use better practices when developing educationally meaningful and legally sound Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). Beginning with the history and purpose of IEPs, this book examines the context and reasons IEPs were first created. The core chapters address better practices in conducting assessments, developing present levels of academic achievement and functional performance statements, crafting measurable annual goals, determining special education services, and monitoring and reporting on students’ progress.
Congratulations to Jim and his co-authors!
