Military kids. They’re just amazing! They change schools, on average, six to eight times over the course of their parent’s military career. They deal with long separations from loved ones – who aren’t headed out for a business trip, but for a year in a combat zone. Despite everything that’s thrown at them, they are strong, brave and adaptable. - Elaine Sanchez, American Forces Press Service

So many challenges moving across the country every two to four years when you have a child with a disability---

  • medical needs
  • new schools = new evaluations = new policy
  • resources and programs

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate we say thank you to military family members for all that you do and all that you give. You will find information and resources to help you when advocating for exceptional family members.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Military and DoD Special Education

Children whose parents are active military often have a rather non-traditional educational experience. These children transfer schools often and sometimes attend school overseas.

Although military children may not be educated in the U.S., they are still entitled to a Free, Appropriate Public Education (FAPE).


DoD Special Needs Parent Tool Kit

The Special Needs Parent Tool Kit has comprehensive information and tools that are geared toward helping military families with children with special needs navigate the maze of medical and special education services, community support, benefits, and entitlements.

Transition and Transferring Schools

When children with disabilities move to a new different school district the new school district must provide services that are comparable to the services in the previous IEP.

Schools dragging their feet when kids move causes harm to the child who is already dealing with issues related to the move and a new school.
