Special needs students can improve reading skills in the summer

Many people tend to discount what some special needs students are capable of. When the educators are the ones who are doing this, great problems can result. For the parents of any child who has an Individualized Education Program (IEP), the summer months might pose a unique problem. One study should give all parents hope for the summer.

Why does my child need an Individualized Education Program?

Children who are classified as needing services provided by special education teachers are required by law to have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) drafted for them. This legal document is supposed to clearly define what your child's specific learning needs are, how the school intends to go about providing them and how they intend to keep track of the process that they're making.

Your rights as an employee and special needs parent

Being the parent of a child with special needs comes with a lot of responsibility. Not only do parents need to know how to properly care for their children, but they might not be able to leave their job to care for their children full-time. If parents still need to work, they should also know their rights as the caregiver of a child with special needs.

Serving the needs of the educationally challenged

The federal government requires that all children -- including those with cognitive deficits -- receive equal access to education. This means that, for children with special educational needs, the local school districts must provide special services to meet those needs. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) governs how the needs of these children must be met.

Common classroom accommodations for special education students

Having a child with special needs can be challenging, especially for those who don't know how much help is available today. That help includes the classroom. Special education classes provide accommodations and modifications for children with special needs in Providence, Rhode Island.
