SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that requires schools to serve the educational needs of eligible students with disabilities. 

 

A child must have one of the identified disabilities and it must adversely affect their educational performance. 

 

Every school district has the legal responsibility to identify, locate and evaluate children who are in need of special education services.  If a child is eligible, an Individual Educational Plan is developed by a team.

 

Under an Individual Education plan a student who meets the requirements will be entitled to: 

  • An IEP with goals

  • Modifications

  • Accommodations

  • Due Process

  • Meet annually

  • Reevaluation every three years

  • Transition planning
