Rochelle’s Special Education Tips
Exactly How Are You Planning to Implement That Service? It’s Greek to Me!
If you examine IEPs from across the State, and even within a school system, you will see some IEP teams provide a clear explanation of how services will be provided in the section of the Services page that asks you to discuss service delivery. Then there are IEPs that leave you clueless as to how a service is to be implemented. This should not be a top secret matter. Do not leave anyone guessing as to what you meant. If you cannot describe how a service is to be delivered, chances are the team did not think it through. This is your chance to wow the parent and perhaps an administrative law judge down the line. You can describe the different areas that are going to be covered when the student is in general education or in a special education classroom. Remember that for many parents, the whole issue of special education services inside of a general education classroom is totally confusing.
