Why is it important?

Our findings reveal that writing a transportable IEP, building partnerships with multiple stakeholders, and finding available resources may make a big difference for families with young military-connected children.


This topic is of great importance because limited research has explored this population. I hope this article helps families, educators, and command leadership work together in new ways to provide young military-connected children with improved and more consistent services.
