The article presents a study on the application of the science GI Curriculum Development on special education and Individualized Education Program (IEP). The concept of IEP does not mean that a new curriculum must be created for each student. It does mean, though, that the range of possibilities for goals and objectives is wide and maybe different for each student. According to the author, the direct application of curriculum goals and objectives to development of IEP prevents useless duplication of efforts and frees teachers for valuable instructional time.
