Individualized Education Program (IEP) Facilitation is an optional process, not required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), that state educational agencies (SEA) or school districts may provide to parents and schools. The goal of a Facilitated IEP meeting is to develop an IEP that is supported by team members and benefits the student. The facilitator helps with communication among team members to create an agenda and ground rules for the meeting. The facilitator also guides the discussion by asking student-focused questions that models effective communication and listening, and works with the IEP team to identify points on which they agree and disagree. This guide covers the following topics: (1) What is IEP facilitation; (2) Benefits of IEP facilitation; (3) Frequently asked questions about IEP facilitation; (4) Ways to prepare for IEP facilitation; and (5) Sources of important information.
