Referral or request for evaluation:
A school professional may ask that a child is evaluated to see if he or she has a disability. Parents may also contact the child’s teacher or another school professional to ask that their child be evaluated.
Each state is required by IDEA to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities in the state who need special education and related services.
Parental consent is needed before a child may be evaluated.
Under the federal IDEA regulations, evaluation needs to be completed within 60 days after the parent gives consent.
Child is evaluated
The evaluation results will be used to decide the child’s eligibility for special education and related services, to make decisions about an appropriate educational program for the child.
Eligibility is decided
Qualified professionals and parents look at the child’s evaluation results, and together, they decide if the child is a “child with a disability,” as defined by IDEA.
Child is eligible for services
If the child is found to be a child with a disability, as defined by IDEA. Within 30 calendar days after a child is determined eligible, a team of school professionals and parents must meet to write an individualized education program (IEP) for the child.
Meeting is scheduled
Notify parents on time.
Schedule meeting at a time and place agreeable.
Inform parents the purpose of the meeting.
Tell parents who will be attending
Invite people who have knowledge or special expertise about the child.
Meeting is held and the IEP is written
The IEP team gathers to talk about the child’s needs and write the student’s IEP. Before the school system may provide special education and related services to the child for the first time, the parents must give consent.
Service is provided to the child
The school makes sure that the child’s IEP is carried out as it was written. That includes that the teacher made the accommodations, modifications, and supports that must be provided to the child inside the classroom.
Progress measured and reported to parents.
