Special Education Documentation Strategies

Learn the special education documentation practices that are legally compliant, and ones that can save you from stressful parental encounters.

Perhaps your school team has worked hard to prepare and implement an appropriate special education program for a student and it has been effective, but if the parents file for due process or otherwise challenge the program it is not what you did that matters, but what you can prove you did. Perhaps you know a student has made progress and done well with the special education services the school has provided, but the parents do not believe it. In both scenarios having documentation of what you did, why and the outcome of the same is critical. In this ondemand course, review why documentation is so important in this area. In addition, we will discuss how to document things and how not to document things. Lastly, we will discuss what legal requirements exist related to documents in the area of special education law.
