Current legislation (IDEA 2004 and NCLB 2001) mandates require that team members (e.g. special education teacher, parents, general education teacher, administrator, school psychologist, speech and language pathologist, etc.) find an efficient means of sharing student information for Individualized Education Plan (IEP) development while maintaining student confidentiality. Internet-based resources have the potential to increase teacher efficiency in development and review of the IEP. The proposed demonstration will provide participants with a rationale for making use of internet-based resources to streamline the IEP process while maintaining professional integrity to its function. Participants will have the opportunity to view and explore an example of an internet-based electronic IEP program on laptop computers.
