Before an IEP can take place Special education teachers should be aware of the process that goes into determining if a child is eligible for services.


Eligibility for Special Education

How a Student Qualifies for Special Education Services

First, a child must meet the criteria for one of the 13 disability categories recognized by the IDEA.


Then, there must be an educational need that cannot be met with general education services.


The third step is to identify the “ nature and severity” of the child’s disability.

The fourth step is to determine if the child needs special education services to receive a FAPE.


What is a FAPE?

Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) is a right guaranteed by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

FAPE refers to a range of services and supports that are designed to meet the individual needs of students with disabilities.
