Training Overview

Do you think your student has a disability? Learn what to do next.

During the pandemic, many disabilities went undiagnosed. A student struggling with reading, math, or other school activities may have a disability. Furthermore, you may have been collecting data all year on your student and don’t know how to move forward to determine if a student qualifies for an IEP. Instead of wondering, you can take specific steps to identify the signs and refer the student for a special education evaluation.

Taking action now will enable you to help students before the school year ends, ensure they receive the services they need during the summer, and prepare them for success in 2022-23.
