IEP and Free Appropriate Public Education

Green Clock Hours: 2.00

A central tenant of an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is the concept of providing a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) for students with disabilities. While FAPE is mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), its definition has been debated and its proper application into a child’s IEP has often been contested. The goal of this course is to help educators in K – 12 settings understand the importance of FAPE and how to best ensure its application within a child’s IEP. This course will cover the legislative history of providing FAPE to students with disabilities, and will include case examples of IEPs that effectively and ineffectively provide students with FAPE. This course will also describe the benefits of providing FAPE for students with disabilities, as well as consequences that may occur if a FAPE is not recognized in a student’s IEP.
