Special education students are guaranteed access to free public education resources in the United States. In California, a Downey Individualized Education Program provides guidance for this type of education. This is not a one-time document, but rather a yearly reviewed, reworked and renewed document that exists particularly for the good of the student. However, it also helps to direct teachers and provides parents with information about how their children are doing in school.
Reviewing Individualized Education Programs for Children in Downey
The Downey Individualized Education Program is reviewed prior to each school year in a major meeting that includes numerous school district personnel as well as the parents and anyone applicable that the parents choose to invite. Obviously, teachers and therapists are there. However, a psychologist is often there as well to explain the results of any assessments that were performed to see what type of programs the child could use.

We can help parents with the fair hearings that they may wish to schedule to fight these determinations.
