Develop and monitor high-quality IEPs for diverse learners High-quality IEPs are fundamental for guiding the educational process of and developing goals for students who require special education services. English learners (ELs) and other students with learning, emotional, or behavioral disabilities present unique challenges to educators responsible for referring, assessing, and placing them. IEPs for ELs provides educators with numerous research-based strategies and examples of how to write effective IEPs for these K-12 learners. John J. Hoover and James Patton, leading professionals in the areas of special education and linguistic diversity, share their research and how they have supported ELs who have, or are suspected of having, learning and intellectual disabilities. Readers will find: Practical guidance for developing and monitoring culturally and linguistically responsive IEPs Checklists, guides, and other reproducibles that support IEP development Case studies and vignettes highlighting examples of appropriate IEPs for diverse learners Filled with expert practical advice that covers the IEP process and walks the reader through the procedure for creating high-quality IEPs that take individual differences into account, this guide is essential for special educators and bilingual/EL specialists.
A major strength for this book is its unique tie to English Learners, while providing a dual focus on IEP writing. The material can be used with any student who has learning difficulties, and the book addresses multiple scenarios that are relatable to the real world of teaching. This is a great tool to use when training new special education teachers and IEP facilitators. There are direct connections to writing legally defensible plans with a user-friendly focus on IEP writing. I see this book as a tool to support teachers and students in ensuring that language and cultural considerations are included when developing and updating individual plans. -- Renee Bernhardt, Supervisor, Special Education
