Why contact CEDR for special education issues?
The special education process requires a joint effort of school personnel and families. But the people involved don't always agree on special education issues such as
- the nature of a student's needs
- what to include in an Individualized Education Program (IEP)
- how to provide services
- whether the services provided have been adequate
- how to assess student success
The disagreements may be based on poor communication or misunderstandings; they may also be substantive differences based on different interests. No matter what the basis for the disagreement, the people involved may not have the skills they need to work through the disagreement collaboratively and produce the best result for the student.
