The problem

Special education teachers have struggled for decades to balance their work and personal life due to the huge constraints that IEP’s place upon them.

The additional stress has caused many good teachers to walk away from the job they love! It causes rifts at home, it eats up personal time, and (often overlooked) it also costs a lot of money… upwards of $2,500 (keep reading to learn why).

fastIEP is a comprehensive software tool for the IEP process. Designed specifically for the professionals who work with children with disabilities, fastIEP provides a wealth of information and relevant guidance to support implementation of effective individualized education programs. Our software allows teachers to easily determine the best instructional delivery method and curriculum for each of their students.

Our History

That was until Harvard and MIT-trained Neuroscientist Dr. Ned Sahin PhD, who has dedicated most of his professional life to creating software which helps disadvantaged children…

…saw the daily struggles that Special Education teachers were going through, and he noticed there wasn’t any useful software programs available to make their lives any easier.

That’s when he decided to step in … and what he and his passionate team of scientists, programmers, and teachers created, was simply breathtaking. It will make your life easier!

IEP writing software

Imagine if your teachers could:

  • Log each IEP-related event in a single click!
  • Indeed, log events so fast that they can do all your data collection right as things happen in the classroom, so all data is safely stored in the computer.
  • Never need to pull together data from multiple places when report time comes around.
  • Have beautiful data charts created automatically in the background – so you needn’t spend a minute to create them for the next IEP Report, or when a parent emails for an update.
  • Give up post-it notes, paper data sheets, and notebooks — FOREVER!!
  • Get automated help composing elegant, effective IEP goals in compliant S.M.A.R.T. format.
  • Have instant access to ALL your kids’ records, past and present (available within seconds) … no need to rummage through folders with a hundred documents!
  • Recover dozens of hours from reporting – to devote to actual teaching, and to spend with your own family!
  • Complete the majority of your IEP report… without writing (or typing) a single word!
  • Save (on average) $2,500… which you probably didn’t even realize you were losing!

You may be thinking…

…that you’ve seen something like this before… but you haven’t

…that it will be complicated… but it isn’t

…that there will be compliance or privacy concerns… but there aren’t

…that it’s expensive… but it definitely is not!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We already have IEP software, why do we need fastIEP?

    Most “IEP Software” is designed to help you write compliant IEPs. They typically don’t provide any tools or functionality for real-time progress monitoring. So, once you’ve written the IEP your teachers still have to track progress on paper, manually, or in spreadsheets.
    Writing compliant IEPs is important, but it’s only half of the picture. To be fully compliant with Endrew F., you need to show that you’re monitoring progress and that each student is making meaningful progress in light of their individual circumstances.

  • Can fastIEP integrate with our existing IEP authoring tool and student information system?

    Yes, we can integrate with most IEP tools, student information systems, single sign-on systems and learning management systems. We will set this up as part of our standard district onboarding package once you’ve decided to implement fastIEP.

  • Can I use ESSER or title funds to acquire IEP progress monitoring tools?

    Yes, actually all of these funding sources can be applied to IEP progress monitoring. If you have ESSER funds remaining, you can use these funds effectively by purchasing a multi-year subscription. IEP progress monitoring also falls under IDEA Part B, Title II (fastIEP provides professional development to teachers in the area of IEP goal creation and progress monitoring), Title III (fastIEP can also be used to monitor the progress of ELL students) and Title IV (contributes to social-emotional learning and healthy lifestyle habits).

  • Is fastIEP compliant with COPPA, FERPA, HIPPA, etc.?

    COPPA deals exclusively with websites that children can access themselves. fastIEP is only accessible by educators and parents. Children never log in to fastIEP, so COPPA is not relevant.
    FERPA protects the privacy of student personal details and educational records. With fastIEP, the only personal information we store is the student’s name. We don’t store address, phone number, date of birth, grades, etc. fastIEP’s terms of service strictly prohibit us from sharing, selling or otherwise transferring any data to any third parties. For increased protection, some schools enter only the student’s first name, or a code/nickname or student identifier instead of the full name.
    HIPPA is applicable only to health care providers. fastIEP does not provide health care services and therefore is not covered by HIPPA.

  • What is the pricing model?

    The price is an annual software license per student whose progress will be tracked. This allows you to add as many teachers, paraprofessionals, BCBAs, SLPs, OTs and administrators as you need without worrying about needing licenses. The standard list price is $40 per student for one year, however we offer both volume discounts and multi-year discounts that can bring this down significantly.

  • Our LMS already tracks progress automatically. Why do we need fastIEP?

    Learning management systems are limited to tracking only what they teach, which is typically academic subjects like reading and math. Learning management systems cannot track behavioral or functional goals, which are very common in IEPs.
