Related Services are any services that are necessary to help a student benefit from his/her special education program. These services are agreed upon during a student's Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting. The Related Services specialists may provide services directly to students or may work with the general or special education teacher in collaboration to support the IEP goals.
What services are available?
Related Services may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Students between 3 and 22 years of age whose vision, speech, language, hearing, or physical limitations affect their ability to benefit from their educational program.
What else do I need to know?
The goal of Related Services is to help students overcome or adapt to their specific disabilities both in the classroom and in daily life. Frequently our service providers work with the student in the general or special education classroom, but services may also be provided in another location at the school. Parents will be kept informed about the student's program and progress. The need for services and the frequency of service delivery will be determined by the IEP team.
