Your Principal has asked you to generate a presentation to share with other teachers at your school. The presentation needs to contain an overview about working with students that have special needs, and technological resources that can enhance students' educational experiences.


  • 1. What our students want & what our students need?
    Look into our special students needs

2. ~Our necessities never equal our wants.
Benjamin Franklin
3. What is an iep?
According to
An IEP is an Individualized Education Program designed to detail and document the plan the school intends to use with your child who has been designated as a child in need of special education services.
The IEP lists goals and objectives that it will attempt to reach with your child. It will also list the education and services that your child is to receive in order to attempt to reach those goals and objectives. The school cant guarantee progress or the best program out there, only one in which the child will make meaningful educational progress by implementation of the IEP that is reasonably calculated to confer meaningful educational benefit.
The IEP is also supposed to contain ways to measure progress toward those goal and objectives.
The IEP is supposed to be a contract between the school, child and parents, written in such a fashion that it should be portable and can be taken to another school and implemented exactly the same way, if need be.
