This certificate course is designed to help educational therapists to improve their practical skills in preparing Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for one-to-one intervention work with students with specific learning difficulties. Based on the Assessment, Planning, Implementation and Evaluation (APIE) model, participants will be introduced to systematic practices at each stage so that each IEP is an effective “road-map” for intervention. This course takes a problem-solving approach so that participants will better understand the process of IEP planning better.


*A prerequisite for this course is an ability to understand a psychological assessment report. 


Note: This course is suitable for teachers and educational professionals of special education needs who wish to enrich their current knowledge and practice in IEP planning.




  • Tools and Instruments for Needs Analysis
  • Writing Measurable IEP Goals and Objectives
  • Progress Monitoring Tools
  • Reflective Questioning for IEP Review




Participants are to undertake a case study and write a report on it. The case study will involve conducting a needs analysis on a SpLD learner and preparing an IEP based on his/her profile and needs. The IEP should also include appropriate tools for monitoring learner progress. Participants are to generate reflective questions that would be asked to guide a systematic review of the IEP that was planned.  




  • A Certificate of Achievement will be awarded to participants who attain at least 75% attendance and successfully pass the assessment.
  • A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to participants who attain at least 75% attendance but do not wish to undertake the assessment.
