In the U.S., an education program tailored to a particular student with a disability, the provision of which is mandated by law. Mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (q.v.), an IEP has two parts; the plan itself and the written document supporting it.

Individualized Education Program



A documented program of intervention mandated for each child provided with education-related rehabilitation services under federal legislation. The program guarantees a free and appropriate public education for children with disabilities. Decisions relating to IEPs must be approved in Admission, Review and Discharge conferences mandated by federal legislation. Participants in these conferences should include parents or guardians, special educators, rehabilitation providers, and others as appropriate.
