You do have rights. These rights are given to you by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Sample IEP

The following is a sample IEP that uses Play Attention as the intervention used to reach specific student goals. Play Attention is a fantastic intervention to use in an IEP because it addresses and documents progress in a variety of cognitive skills and behaviors. Each Play Attention level cited in the criterion section addresses a different cognitive skill. The cognitive skills are as follows:
Level I, Sustained Attention

Level III, Time on Task
Level IV, Short Term Memory
