Abstract

Children with special needs are those who require special educational and treatment as to develop humanity potential in themselves. One of the methods which can be carried out is Individual Educational Program (IEP). Individual Educational Program is a learning program designed to assist children with special needs based on strength they possess. The creation of IEP requires cooperation between professionals as well as parents. So, such program can run. The creation of IEP begins with data intake, assessment, program design, implementation and evaluation. IEP intended for special needs children must be designed correctly and written as a document which describes learning program for them and should be a guideline in the implementation. The subject of the study were one therapist as well as parents of the autism-diagnosed child. The type of the study used was qualitative case study. This study ran for seven months starting from assessment, creation, implementation and evaluation. The study result showed the child experienced a positive development, therapist had plans in each program which would be delivered. In addition, parents could also be helped in educating the child at home due to the existence of IEP. Difficulty which occurred during IEP‟s implementation was both the child and the parents„ boredom, feeling that it was still difficult to run the program at home because a child‟s behaviors differ at home as well as at the therapy center.
