Monmouth County special needs planning lawyer Christine Matus releases a new article (https://matuslaw.com/5-essential-components-individualized-education-program-iep/) explaining the five essential components of an individualized education program (IEP). The lawyer mentions that an IEP is required for special education services. An IEP is a document that will set out a child’s learning needs and outline the services the school will have to provide for the child. An IEP is a very important document that will help set the stage for a child’s success in school.

“Several people, including general education and special education teachers, a school district representative, and other specialists are involved in creating the plan. Parents also play a big role in creating the plan, which means you can help ensure that the program will be effective for your child,” the Monmouth County special needs planning lawyer says.

The lawyer adds that one of the most important components of an IEP is the PLOP. A PLOP or Present Level of Performance is a statement of how the child is doing at school. This statement will provide a baseline from which the child will be able to learn and grow. The PLOP will change annually and will also be adjusted according to the needs of the child.

Attorney Christine Matus also explains that an outline of the special education services provided by the school is another important component of the IEP. The school will detail the educational services and accommodations necessary to meet the child’s needs.

In the article, attorney Matus says “Every year, your child should have new educational goals. These goals should be measurable and achievable. It is important to be realistic while also challenging your child. This includes both functional and pedagogical goals. Additional short-term goals may also be required, depending on your child’s unique needs.”

Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes planning for the needs of a child with special needs can be very challenging. The processes involved can be complex. This is why it’s crucial to seek the help of an experienced New Jersey special needs planning attorney who may be able to help the client understand their rights and how they can plan their next steps.
