When a younger student with special needs joins the formal school system for the first time, the family needs to be heavily involved in the child’s education. This individualized family service plan considers the input of all stakeholders in the child’s education — educational professionals, parents, and specialists. The forms have been created in checklist format to ease the professionals’ use of it. There is minimal narrative input, and a template for the notes has been provided. This is for teacher use in the classroom to help coordinate with parents.
We highly recommend that schools/teachers attend an IEP/IFSP process workshop conducted by Samam Vidya in order to get maximum benefit from these forms.
