IEP Checklist App

The Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center (PEATC) offers an Individualized Education Program (IEP) Checklist iPhone app. School-aged students with disabilities are provided an Individualized Education Program designed to support their unique educational needs. The IEP Checklist App helps parents of students with special needs become better-informed advocates by making IEP information easier to access. The newest version of the app has active links to the relevant language in the federal regulations; allows users to record the IEP meeting or record notes; and has the capacity to print out notes and click on a checklist as requested items are discussed.
