START Project IEP Tool Kit

Tools for Family-Educator Collaboration in the IEP Process

The IEP team is a group of individuals with diverse experiences who share responsibility for and joint commitment to achieving positive outcomes for students. Each team member’s input is equally valuable and necessary.  These tools provide the IEP team  a vehicle for individual perspectives to be shared.



"Only when each participant’s input is respected and appreciated will the most comprehensive understanding of the child be developed."
