Special Education Introduction: Secondary

Special education requires coordination between administrators, educators, and parents. This course gives you a visual roadmap for secondary education. Beginning with IDEA, including the key elements of FAPE, LRE, and transition services, you’ll be given a clear picture of the basics of legal compliance. Categories of disabilities are also introduced. The Individual Transition Plan and Summary of Performance documents and processes are featured, along with an explanation of Age of Majority. IEP’s are addressed by looking at the key components, and you’ll benefit from seeing sample IEP goals. The course concludes with a sweeping overview of the many ways that collaboration is embedded and essential throughout the special education process.
