What educators are saying

I love this so much! I’ve even showed off my front cover on Facebook and linked this store. It’s fantastic!
I purchased to actually make for my parents to keep Hs documents together. With students going on to adult assistance and other services this helps them keep their papers together and organized.



If purchased prior to the date updated, please re-download from the "My Purchases" page to access all the updates! Read below to find out all updates included.

As special education teachers we know how much time and paperwork is involved with each student. It can not only be overwhelming for teachers, but also for the parents! Rather than scare parents with all the paperwork and information, this IEP Parent Portfolio binder is an ideal and easy way to help parents through the process. This year was my first year sharing this portfolio binder with my students' parents. It was a HUGE hit! We are currently coming to the end of our school year, however, I have parents already calling/emailing me what they should include in their portfolio binders for the start of NEXT year!

You will find when you look at this portfolio binder how self explanatory and easy to follow it is. Parents are able to keep all important educational documents that they will need for their child in one spot. These documents can include previous IEPs/evaluations, current classroom observations, contact logs, etc. Documents can also be added during meetings. Giving something like this to the parents has been a huge help to the them, their students, and myself!:)

*You are essentially getting 1 black & white IEP Parent Binder and 1 color IEP Parent Binder, all in 1 download!

You will be receiving this binder as a PowerPoint and as a PDF.

The PowerPoint version allows you to "edit" the slides by adding your own text boxes. Whereas the PDF version prints in a better quality, allowing you to ONLY hand write on the pages you choose to use. The PDF is a secured document due to copyright laws.

Worried about using too much colored ink?!

I have also included a black & white version of all of the forms included!
