A disability “label” does not mean that certain special education services are off-limits. Once a student is eligible for special education, the IEP team determines what services are needed in order to make progress toward goals and offer FAPE in the LRE. There is no stipulation in the law that says a student with an identification of developmental disability and speech impairment cannot access other services. It’s up to the team to decide what “blend” and combination of services and supports are necessary.

What does the child’s IEP say about services and who will provide them?
