Cross-Categorical Special Education
I like to...

- Be prepared for meetings
Need ideas or resources?
Have concerns or problems?
Don't sweat! Come see me! :)
- Be discrete & confidential

What is it?
Child find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA ’04) that requires PEAs to locate, identify, and evaluate all children with disabilities, aged birth through 21, located within their geographical boundaries who are in need of early intervention or special education services.
Who Does It
-Children aged birth through 21years
-Students who are highly mobile, such as migrant and homeless children
-Children suspected of having a disability, even though they are advancing from grade to grade
Start of year: 45 day screeners
throughout the year: sharing observations
- The IEP is only for children who require special education services.
- The 504 plan offers all children with disabilities equal access to an education. (no services)
-The IEP documents contain very specific language and parts such as goals and objectives
-Written document: no goals or objectives, only accommodations
-Timelines & due dates for an IEP are very specific and important.
-Specific timelines for the 504 do not exist.

Accommodations vs. Modifications
An accommodation is a change that helps a student overcome or work around the disability. These changes are typically physical or environmental changes.
- Ex: A student who has difficulty writing may have test taken orally.
*Pretty much anything that is currently on a student's IEP is an accommodation.
Modifications are generally connected to instruction and assessment; things that can be tangibly changed or modified.
A modification means a change in what is being taught to or expected from the student.
Making the assignment easier so the student is not doing the same level of work as other students is an example of a modification.
Ex: Reduced assignment or number of problems, Lower level book or vocabulary, tests written in lower level of understanding
What was working last year?

Watch for symptoms
Know emergency plans
Be aware of needs & accommodations
Make sure appropriate medication and medical devices are with you
It is our philosophy as a college-prep high school to mainly accommodate our students rather than modify
Please also keep in mind to not
a student's abilities
