These video modules will provide parents, families, and other stakeholders with a brief but comprehensive overview of the special education process on the following topics: Introduction (Overview of Series), IdentificationEvaluationEligibilityIndividualized Education Program (IEP)ReevaluationEarly Intervention, and What’s Next.
