Special Education Process

The special education process determines whether or not your child is eligible for special education services and if so, what special education services are most appropriate for your child.

There are four (4) basic steps in the special education process:

1. Referral for Assessment

2. Assessment

3. Development and Implementation of an Individualized Education Program (IEP)

4. IEP Review
