Strong working knowledge of the differences between an IFSP, IEP, and 504 Pla

 
Strong working knowledge of the differences between an IFSP, IEP, and 504 Plans is important for teachers working with children from birth through age 8. During this time, students often transition from one type of plan to another as they age, grow, develop and as more data and information about a specific disability category or diagnosis is obtained. Knowing when and how to develop and implement each type of plan is important to ensure the individual needs of each child are met according to the legal guidelines.
Part 1: Scenarios
Write three scenarios, one for IFSP, one for IEP, and one for a 504 Plan. Each scenario should be no more than 250 words and should describe when each of the three types of service plans would be most appropriate. Include specific student details, types of data that would be collected, timelines for implementation, and all stakeholders that would be involved in the process for each scenario.
Part 2: In-Service Digital Presentation
Imagine you have been tasked with creating in-service training about the three types of student service plans for an audience of school administrators, general education teachers, school counselors, and paraprofessionals. Create a 12-15 slide digital presentation outlining the purpose and best scenario for the use of an IFSP, IEP, and 504 Plan. The presentation should utilize the Part 1 Scenarios and address the following:
Explanation of the characteristics of each type of plan and when it is most appropriate for use, including a specific example for each.
Description of what law applies to each plan, including the name of the legislation.
Summary of who is eligible for each plan.
Explanation of who creates the plan and the individuals responsible for implementing the plan.
How each type of plan supports student needs.
Describe the overlaps and transitions that can occur in the application of IFSPs, IEPs, and 504 Plans and provide an example to illustrate your ideas.
Title slide, reference slide, and presenter notes.
