Who is a child with a disability?

First published on 08 July 2008 Posted in Special Education

A child with a disability is a child who needs special education and related services. The child must be at least 3 years old, but not yet 21, and not yet graduated from high school. The term includes a person who becomes 21 during the school term for the remainder of the school term (the last day pupils attend in a school year, other than summer classes). The law has criteria for each category below to help IEP teams decide if a child has a disability.

Special Education Process Map

First published on 08 July 2008 Posted in Special Education

The chart (click to enlarge) shows how a child gets into a special education program. State law has a timeline for the process. A district must ask a parent for consent for evaluation or send a notice that no tests are needed within 15 business days of receiving a written referral. The evaluation must be done within 60 calendar days of when the school gets parent consent to evaluate or the date the parent was notified that testing is not needed. An IEP and placement must be developed within 30 days of deciding a child is eligible for special education. The evaluation can take more than 60 days, if the parent does not make the child available for testing, or if the child moves to another school district before the evaluation is done. In some cases, and only if parents agree, the evaluation of children being evaluated for specific learning disabilities may be extended more than 60 days.

Although this chart shows a series of decisions, all the decisions are connected.  All the decisions are centered on the needs of the child.

For example, when the IEP team talks about evaluation, they also think about what services the child will need and where the child will get the services.

For some children, all the IEP team's decisions can be made in one meeting.  For other children, the IEP team will need to meet together more than once.

Anyone on the IEP team can ask for more time if it is needed.  Anyone on the IEP team can also ask for an IEP team meeting to be held if there are changes to be talked about.
