girl with soldier dadThis Memorial Day many people gathered on lawns and porches, fired up the grill, and enjoyed the company of family, friends, and neighbors. But Memorial Day is also a time to reflect on and pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and their families.

Many of these military families have exceptional children with special educational needs who receive special education services under an IEP.

The peak season for relocation of military families is May through August. During this time, military children face difficult issues, including transfers in and out of schools, while often dealing with other emotions.

We salute our military families. This issue of the Special Ed Advocate provides information for military families and for those who are being transferred and may be moving this summer. You'll find additional information for all families about summer programs for kids.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to friends, family members, or colleagues.

Proposed Regulations! The Department of Defense has issued proposed revisions to their special education regulations. Final Regs have not been issued as of May 26, 2015.

The present regs do not provide for a child with a disability who moves from a public school with an IEP to a DoDEA school to be entitled to a "comparable" IEP.
