Many special educators experience IEPs as burdensome, time-consuming legal documents that they quickly file with no intention of ever using. Many parents experience the IEP development process as intimidating, frustrating, and pointless. Too often, hours are spent laboring over IEP goals which are still unsatisfactory.
