All decisions about your child’s program are made by the IEP team. A related service provider may be a required member of the team if they are responsible for implementing the IEP.
If a child with a disability has an identified need for related services, it would be appropriate for the related service personnel to attend the meeting. - Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP)
Educational Audiology is a related service under the IDEA.
What does an Educational Audiologist do? Do you need one on your child's team?
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn about IEP team members and attendance, and when team members may be excused from a meeting. You will also learn about educational audiologists as related service providers and when they should be part of the team.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
