IEP Technical Assistance Center

The Individualized Education Program Technical Assistance Center or IEP TA Center, formerly the Indiana IEP Resource Center, is a project of Indiana State University supported through Part B federal funds distributed by the Indiana Department of Education.

The purpose of the center is to increase knowledge, skills, and capacity of Indiana educators to improve outcomes for students with disabilities. The IEP TA Center promotes inclusive education with a belief in shared responsibility and equitable access to a strong core curriculum with high-quality instruction benefiting all students. To fulfill this purpose, IEP TA Center staff provide professional learning, technical assistance, and resources to support educators in the field.

While the IEP Technical Assistance Center is primarily a resource for teachers and administrators, we also partner with family support agencies and work to provide resources to help parents understand the IEP process. To access resources specific to parents and families, visit IEP TA Center’s website.

Another service of interest to parents is our Facilitated IEP (FIEP) Services. A FIEP is an option available at the request of schools and parents for conflict prevention and resolution. This service is provided at no cost to parents or schools. A trained impartial professional (facilitator) helps the case conference committee with the IEP process. For more information and to request a FIEP, visit the FIEP site.
