Special Education
Inclusion For All Students
Who are students with disabilities?

What is my role?

How do we educate students with disabilities?

What about struggling students without IEPs?
All Students are general education students!
Students who receive special education services are general education students with disabilities.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that governs how public agencies provide early intervention, special education and related services to children with disabilities.
What is your role?
General educators should provide relevant information about a student's academics and behavior,
actively participate in brainstorming goals and solutions,
and be a part of the decision-making process particularly when it comes to strategies that will be implemented in the general education classroom.
Strategies for Successful Learning
Inclusion is the learning practice of educating students with disabilities in classrooms that include students without disabilities.
Models for Inclusion
Collaborative Teaching
Station Teaching
Parallel Teaching
Differentiated Instruction
Differentiation occurs when teachers
purposefully plan
different approaches to what students need to learn, how they will learn, or how they will show they have learned in order to increase the likelihood that each student will learn as much as he or she possibly can.
How should it look?
what teachers want students to learn.
how the students learn the content.
how students show what they learned.
Thank you for you attention!
IAT Process
When students are not making progress within the general education classroom the Intervention Assistance Team (IAT) process should be implemented.
IAT Must Dos
Before referring a student to IAT (putting their name on the tracking sheet), the IAT team must receive the following documents:
Parent Contact Form (teacher must call parent for this information)
Student Information Log
Student Intervention Table
Additional forms will be provided during IAT meeting for approved students.
IAT meetings will be held monthly during grade level team meetings.
1st grade level IAT meeting will be held in November.
Grade level meetings will be used to discuss individual students and their progress.
House IAT meetings will be used to discuss intervention strategies.
IAT continuations from previous year...Tracking Sheet

Context of Basic Rules and Regulations
Child Find:
Schools must actively look for and evaluate students with suspected disabilities.
Must document interventions and student’s response to the intervention(s).
Must respond to written parent requests for special education evaluations.
The school must determine if there is any evidence to proceed with an evaluation within 10 school days.
What is an IEP?

The Individualized Education Program is a legally binding contract between the school district and the parent.

The contents of the IEP cannot be changed without reconvening the IEP team

Required team members include the general education teacher, special education teacher, and district representative.

The IEP contains:
Statement of eligibility
Present level of academic and functional performance
Measurable annual goals and objectives
identification of sped programs and services
identification of supplementary aids and services
Accommodations for state assessments
