An Individual Education Program, also known as an IEP can be essential in insuring you or your child’s academic needs will be addressed in a documented and systematic way through your or their school career. There are multiple components of an individualized learning plan and many professionals both within the school and outside the school collaborate and work together to develop an individual plan. Often, in order to obtain academic modifications, you may be required to have an evaluation by a mental health care professional like a Psychiatrist, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or Therapist. We understand the process at first may seem daunting, but we can help. In addition to establishing an IEP, over time, the plan will be evaluated, updated and further modifications may be made. This may require ongoing assessment and documentation by your mental health provider.

Common conditions that may benefit from an IEP include:

  • Autism
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Speech or Language Impairment
  • Emotional Disorders
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Learning Disabilities

Very often, establishing and maintaining an IEP can greatly improve your or your child’s learning process and academic success. We can work with your school and other providers to ensure your school has all documentation required to support your IEP. Please contact our office if you feel you or your child may benefit from establishing and or maintaining an Individual Education Program.
