Present Levels of Educational and Functional Performance

The IEP requires statements of present levels that clearly state how a free appropriate public education (FAPE) and educational benefit will be insured. These statements should paint a picture of a student’s learning profile in terms of the uniqueness of their learning (including their strengths as a learner); how this uniqueness impacts their access to general education; and their associated needs for specialized programming. The IEP also requires clear statements of present levels of educational and functional performance, and these should be threaded through the IEP as baseline for associated goals/objectives. This webinar provides guidance related to the development of these present level statements, including specific examples of language in the IEP.
