"The IEP focuses on long term goals and objectives for educating the child. Children with disabilities (including infants and toddlers) are entitled to receive special education and related services based on their individual needs, which are determined by an assessment and evaluation. A multidisciplinary team, including the child's parents, develops the IEP. If a child needs a related service (e.g., occupational therapy, language therapy) to receive a free appropriate public education, it must be provided at no cost to the parents. Each state has at least one federally funded Parent Training and Information Center (PTI). These centers are designed to provide information and training to parents concerning their child's right to a free appropriate public education. For more information on the law, check the FAPE Web site. "
