Students who are unable to progress effectively in the general education environment and who are suspected to have a disability will be referred for a team evaluation. If a student is eligible, the team will develop an individual education program (IEP) and a placement where the student’s needs can be met. Students who are eligible for special education may have their needs met in a variety of ways that may include some time out of the general education classroom. A variety of programs and services are available at each level in the public schools including therapy services (OT, PT, SLP).
