for special education
Many children coming from foster care have complex and “unseen” needs and can qualify for special education. The first step is to request an evaluation, known as the MET. If a child qualifies for special education based on the results of the evaluation, then an Individualized Education Plan (or IEP) will be developed to meet the unique needs of this child.
Examples of things that might qualify them for special education are a diagnosis of ADHD; PTSD; dyslexia; difficulty with core subjects such as reading, writing, and math; developmental delays; speech delays; and social and emotional delays.
The first step is determining if your student needs special education services and support.
