      The Individualized with Disabilities Educational Act (IDEA) ensures that every child diagnosed with an eligible disability ages 3-21 is provided a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment. One of the provisions of IDEA is that students who qualify for special education services receive an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). IDEA requires specific guidelines to be met by schools, however, research indicates IEP’s established by educators have missing components and quality IEP’s are lacking. Therefore, the purpose of this synthesis project is to review the literature on problems and challenges encountered by educators during the IEP process.
