As teachers, sometimes we forget how long it took to learn the laws and processes we go through to help our students succeed in the classroom. Trying to explain Due Process or an IEP may become tricky if we barely know how to explain it ourselves without the legal terminology.
This booklet was made with parents and general educators in mind to help break down the very important parts of the job. I designed this book to comprehensively explain the laws at the Federal level and for the state of Nebraska (Rule 51).
Inside you will find:
- How to qualify for special education (federally and in NE), the main laws at the federal level and how the overlap, what is housed in the IEP, who is involved in the process, the timeline for services, the rights that parents have with their child’s education, tips to help general educators understand the IEP and what we do in special education, and a glossary of over 20 commonly used abbreviations.
