Special Education

Special Education broadly identifies the academic, physical, cognitive and social-emotional instruction offered to children who are faced with disabilities. Children ages 3 through 21 are eligible if they have a disability and need special education. The law lists specific disability categories including autism, deafness, blindness, developmental delay, emotional disturbance, hearing impairment,intellectual disability, orthopedic impairment, specific learning disability, traumatic brain injury, other health impairment, and visual impairment. The district must provide related services that are necessary to assist the student to benefit from special education. If a students does not need special education he/she is not entitled to related services. In Idaho, speech language therapy is defined as special education and can be a stand-alone service. The law does not require the district to label a student by category of disability to provide services. A team of qualified professionals and the parent (the evaluation team) determines eligibility. After a student is deemed eligible their progress is annually reviewed.
