Helping Teachers Make a Difference in the Lives of Their Students

Alphabet Soup – Understanding Teacher Abbreviations

Hello All,

Today I was part of a meeting called an IEP (Get used to being in a lot of meetings. I’m not a big fan of most meetings, but it’s part of the job.), and I noticed that there were a lot of abbreviations being thrown around. I thought it would be a little confusing for a new teacher, so I started writing some down. Here’s the list. These are only a few of the abbreviations that new teachers will encounter. I’ll add a more complete list in a later post.

FAPE - Free and Appropriate Education (This was new to me.)

IEP –  Individual Education Plan

SLP –  Speech and Language Program

BSP –  Behavior Support Plan

EL –  English Learner

ELD –  English Language Development

Stay tuned for more.
