Our favorite resources for GIEPs:
Parent Webinars on Gifted
Tanya Morret, formerly of the Capitol City Intermediate Unit, has created 3 webinars to help parents and educators understand chapter 16 and the GIEP process. Sometimes the playback quality isn’t great, but the audio is fine. Using the handouts to follow along works well.
Strength-Based GIEPs (this webinar gives an excellent overview of Chapter 16 and what GIEPs are all about)
GIEP Strength Based Document For Parents-1 – Handout (copy of presentation)
Data Webinar (This explores the Present Levels of Expected Performance, or PLEP of the GIEP. PLEP is assessment data, and is critical to writing a GIEP that has appropriate goals)
Parent Handout Data January session – Handout to use during Presentation
DATA for Parents January session (copy of Presentation)
Gifted Re-evaluation (This can be confusing, but basically it is a formal look at your child’s data, and even parents can request this. It’s trickier to understand, but if you watch this webinar and look at the handouts, you will understand the purpose)
Reevaluation for Gifted Students Parent Session (copy of presentation)
