Later this month I will be attending a meeting to discuss ds2's first IDP. The meeting will be held at the CDC and between us we will (hopefully!) decide on ds2's targets. I know about IEPs as ds1 has had them since he was dx'ed at 3.5yrs old but know very little about IDPs. Are they the same thing but just with a different name?
Sorry. Yes the D is for development. I just found it a bit confusing as ds1's IEP targets at pre-school (and dsome at school too) all seemed to be about general development rather than education IYSWIM.
It may just be that the terminology has been clarified. I teach a child with an iep, where an idp would be a more accurate term. He is educationaly par beyond the norm for his year, but need help with socialisation, so Idp would be better for him
