IEP – Individual Education Planning
Special Education and Transitional IEP’s – Feeling Lost in a Traditional School Setting?
The NeuroInternational Team develops and implements IEP’s for children, adolescents, and young adults with neurologic impairment and behavior problems. School systems may decide to make a referral to NeuroInternational when an adolescent or young adult has behavioral and transitional vocational needs that are difficult to meet within the school system environment. NeuroInternational can work with home school districts to develop and implement transitional IEP’s with a strong focus on behavioral self-regulation, functional skills development, and job skills development.
NeuroInternational staff have participated in many IEP meetings and helped work through “Due Process” and other legal issues that may accompany difficult-to-serve school children. Our staff are familiar with IDEA and the policies and procedures required to comply with federal regulations.
