Evaluation The school then evaluates the child to determine whether your child has a disability as well as the nature and extent of the special education and related services that your child needs. (page 8)
Eligibility Based on the results of the evaluation, a team decides if your child is eligible to receive special education and related services. To be found eligible, the team must decide that the child has a disability and as a result needs special education and related services. (page 8)Skip to search results
