Description: Many special educators experience IEPs as burdensome, time-consuming legal documents that they quickly file with no intention of ever using. Many parents experience the IEP development process as intimidating, frustrating, and pointless. Too often, hours are spent laboring over IEP goals which are still unsatisfactory. However, measurable goals and objectives can be surprisingly fast, easy to write, and helpful, once the skill has been learned. This IEP best-practices book can teach you how. Authored by special education and IEP law specialists Dr. Barbara Bateman and Cynthia Herr, it has been completely updated for IDEA 2004
