Explore ways to confidently make special education entitlement decisions. We’ll examine the impact of the pandemic on special education services and decisions and help you sort through the complexities.
Many districts are not seeing typical growth for all students. Should all students who fall behind be referred for special services? Or should educators not refer anyone?
Participants will learn:
- Best practices for screening and progress monitoring of data to avoid over- or under-identification
- Referral regulations and pandemic-related guidance for special education in the U.S.
- Strategies for making confident special education eligibility decisions now and into 2022-23
- How to recognize students who should be referred
