After formal assessments for determining eligibility under IDEA’s 13 disability categories are completed school-based specialists are charged with summarizing the results to aid team decision-making. In turn specific recommendations are made to ensure school staff and family members fully understand how programming and supports should be implemented to address documented student needs. It is vital that teachers understand how to review assessment results and be active team members in collaborating with families around the specific recommendations to be implemented. Teachers must be able to advocate for necessary programming and supports while still addressing the questions/needs of family members.
