Attainment's Recommended Reading for Easier IEPs


A new school year brings new students, new parents and of course, IEP meetings

Do you feel prepared? We'd love to help you with some recommended reading. First-year and experienced teachers alike can benefit from some expert advice on IEPs.


Simplifying IEPs

The good news is, although IEPs can still be time-intensive, gone are the days of needing dozens of goals and objectives for each student. Special education students are general education students first--they just need specialized access. And just because it's not a goal doesn't mean it won't be taught.

The Attainment titles below will be invaluable references for your school year, offering best practices for writing, measuring, analyzing and organizing your IEPs. Here's a sneak peek into each one:

Aligning IEPS to Standards

Aligning IEPs to State Standards

This book is #1 on the list in more than one way. One of our bestsellers in this category, it has been pinned by more teachers than any of our other IEP-related titles, and for good reason. It's a must-have resource for teachers who need to align IEPs to state academic standards, including the Common Core.

Visit the product page for sample pages. It guides you through the process from start to finish, plus you'll find case studies, suggestions for current assistive technology, and ways to embed self-determination into each student's IEP.
