IEP - INDIVIDUAL EDUCATIONAL
In order to systematically monitor the students,
the staff discusses every child individually and
the group as a whole on a regular basis.
For every student an Individual
Educational Plan (IEP) is designed, based
on specific educational and didactic needs.
During their time at Lighthouse, the children
are followed with the use of a monitoring
system (P-scales) designed to track their
development and progress in the areas of learning
and social emotional development. In addition
the teacher regularly notes what subject matter
the student has been offered and has mastered.
Several times a year the IEP is reviewed and
adjusted if necessary. In this way we monitor
the performance with the individual learning
line of the child. The information will
be saved in an individual educational
At the end of the school year, each child receives
a written report.
In addition to the educational portfolio there
is a general confidential file.
In this file all information about the child is
kept, as far as it is relevant to the education
of and the assistance to the child.
This means that the file may contain reports
of admission inquiries, reports from former schools
and from external therapists. Also reports of
discussions, of interviews with the parents and
of treatments will be kept in this file.
This file is accessible only to professionals
who are directly involved with the education and
care of the student. Under the Dutch Law of Privacy,
access to this information is restricted and professional
secrecy is guaranteed.
