Feb 9, 2019


Welcome to Fountain of Hope, your trusted partner in preparing for your ISP/IEP (Individual Support Plan/Individualized Education Program) meeting. At Fountain of Hope, we understand the importance of these meetings and the impact they have on individuals and families in our community.

What is an ISP/IEP?

An ISP/IEP is a personalized support plan that outlines specific goals, accommodations, and services for individuals with disabilities or special needs. These plans are developed collaboratively by a team of professionals, educators, and family members to ensure the best possible outcomes for the individual.

Why is the ISP/IEP Meeting Important?

The ISP/IEP meeting is a critical opportunity for individuals and families to actively participate in the decision-making process regarding the individual's educational or support services. It allows for open communication, goal setting, and the identification of necessary resources to ensure the individual's success.

Preparing for the ISP/IEP Meeting

1. Gather Information

Prior to the ISP/IEP meeting, it's essential to gather all relevant information about the individual's current abilities, challenges, and progress. This includes educational records, medical documents, assessments, and any other documentation that can provide valuable insights into the individual's needs.

2. Identify Goals

Work closely with the individual, educators, and professionals to identify specific and measurable goals for the ISP/IEP. These goals should be tailored to the individual's strengths, areas of improvement, and long-term aspirations. Setting realistic and achievable goals is crucial to ensure progress and success.

3. Collaborate with the Team

The ISP/IEP meeting involves a collaborative effort between various stakeholders, including educators, therapists, support staff, and family members. Active participation and open communication are key. Share your insights and concerns, listen to others' perspectives, and work together towards a comprehensive plan that addresses the individual's unique needs.

4. Review and Make Adjustments

During the ISP/IEP meeting, the team will review and update the existing support plan. Take this opportunity to discuss any necessary adjustments, modifications, or additions to the plan. Remember, the ISP/IEP should be flexible and adaptable to meet the individual's changing needs over time.

5. Understand Rights and Resources

It's important to be aware of the individual's rights and available resources.
