Use the provided Case Study located on the IEP Project: Final IEP Case Study document, the information below, and the IEP template to develop an IEP for the student. Be sure to carefully review the IEP evaluation rubric to ensure each section of the IEP fully addresses the required criteria.Complete the following in the IEP template:

iii. The specific observable behavior to be performed
iv. The criterion to which the level of performance at the goal will be
v. The target date/timeline for goal attainment (note that for an ANNUAL
