Guidance to Make Special Ed Eligibility Decisions

April 29, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Too few or too many? Preventing
Over-or-Under Identification for
Special Education Services


The impact of the pandemic on special education services and decisions is complex. Many districts feel they have not provided adequate online instruction and are therefore not seeing typical growth for all students. Does that mean all students who fall behind should be referred for special services? Or, should educators do the opposite and not refer anyone?

Join us to examine this nuanced dichotomy and explore ways to confidently make special education entitlement decisions using high-quality data.

You will learn:

  • U.S. special education referral regulations and pandemic-related guidance
  • Best practices for using screening and progress monitoring data to avoid over- or under-identification
  • Strategies to make confident special education eligibility decisions this year and into next
  • Common questions about how to recognize students who should be referred during the pandemic
