The foundation of the special education program for students with disabilities is the Individualized Education Program (IEP) written by the IEP team.

An IEP is a document that describes the individualized education program that has been designed to meet each child's unique needs. In developing the IEP for a young child, the team must keep as its focal point the Rhode Island Early Learning and Development Standards (RIELDS) which include the goals for all young learners.
