New Regulations for Seclusion and Restraint effective 1.1.2021 

The Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA) is what guarantees a free appropriate public education to all eligible children with disabilities.

These are the steps in the special education process:

  1. Identification and referral

  2. Evaluation

  3. Determination of eligibility

  4. Development of an individualized education program (IEP) and determination of services

  5. Reevaluation

When your child receives special education services this means their instruction is specially designed to meet the needs of the child. This is at no cost to the parent. This includes instruction in the classroom, home, hospitals or other settings. Also instruction in physical education. If your child is receiving special education an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is written. The IEP provides information specifically about your child and how this program is going to improve teaching, how your child learns and their academic results. This program is designed specifically for your child and to meet their specific needs.
