IEP is individualized education plan that guides the delivery of special education support for your child. I'm not sure if this is specific to Ontario or if where you live have an equivalent program. I have heard good and bad about it. On one hand your child with SCD who probably misses a lot of school due to illness may very well benefit from this program. On the other hand, is there a stigma attached to it as some feel? Does it make your child feel less than normal to be enrolled? Do you know anyone with scd on an iep and what are their thoughts on it. Should there be automatic provisions in the school system to accommodate those with scd. Are there some you are aware of that you can share with everyone. Or maybe you can share what you do to get your child caught up when they miss school, assignments or exams due to a crisis.
