Whose IDEA is This? is a great resource for parents looking to learn more about the special education process.
Special education services are designed together with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) Team which most often includes a parent(s), general education teacher, intervention specialist, administrator, and any other appropriate related therapy providers relevant to the student.
Special education services can be provided in many ways and in varying environments. A few of the ways students may receive services from a teacher or intervention specialist are: pull-out support, in-class support, resource room instruction, self-contained classroom, and separate facility placement.
The team also creates appropriate goals and objectives for students to achieve throughout the school year. The IEP is updated at least once a year by the team.
It is important to note that special education services are determined by the IEP team.
