About this Free IEP at a Glance template

An IEP (Individualized Education Program) summary is a document that outlines the specific educational goals, accommodations, services, and other key details for a student with a disability. It is created by the students’ special education teacher based on the full IEP. Often times the teacher will distribute this summarized version of the IEP to general education teachers, special education teachers, paraprofessionals, and other staff that will be serving the student. This allows them to quickly reference it without having to read through the whole IEP.

Note: Since the IEP snapshot is a confidential document, it is important that the IEP at a glance is also treated as a confidential document. 

Frequently Asked Questions

An IEP is a document written for students with qualified disabilities that aids them in receiving a free and appropriate public education (FAPE).

It is usually composed of the following components:

  • IEP goals, benchmarks, and objectives
  • Present Levels of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance (PLAAFP)
  • Special education services, including the time, frequency, and location
  • Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)
  • Assistive Technology

IEPs vary by state, however, and each state has differing requirements. SpedTrack helps with this by guiding users through the process of making their IEPs according to their state compliance policies.

IEP eligibility is based off of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which explains that a child is IEP eligible if they have one or more of these thirteen exceptionalities:

  •  Hearing impairment (including deafness)
  • Visual impairment (including blindness)
  • Speech or language impairment
  • Orthopedic impairment
  • Other health impairment (OHI)
  • Intellectual disability
  • Specific learning disability (SLD)
  • Serious emotional disturbance
  • Autism/autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Deaf-blindness
  • Multiple disabilities
  • Developmental delay


The child also must require specialized instruction to progress due to a disability that affects the child’s educational performance and/or ability to learn and benefit from the general education curriculum.
