The specific special education and related services the school will provide depend on the needs of your child and must be decided by the PPT after evaluations have been completed. The PPT make decisions about what services to provide based on what the school has available. Instead, what your child needs in order to make meaningful educational progress drives what must be made available by the school. Parents are equal members of the PPT and can ask for the services they believe their children need. The PPT must write an individualized education plan (IEP) that outlines your child’s strengths and weaknesses, the goals for your child, short term objectives, how the goals and objectives will be measured, and what services will be provided to help your child reach his or her goals. The PPT must meet at least once every year to review your child’s IEP and make appropriate changes.
