Parent Resources

The research is clear on parent involvement: when parents are involved in their children’s education, students have higher grades/test scores/graduation rates, better school attendance, increased motivation, better self-esteem, lower rates of suspension, decreased use of drugs/alcohol, and fewer instances of violent behavior. The Exceptional Children Division works diligently to collaborate with parents, provide information to parents, provide information on parent involvement to LEAs, and support parent involvement in their children’s education. The information within the parent resources pages are available to assist you in supporting your child.

The Role of Related Service Personnel
This 14-minute video describes the role of school psychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and speech language pathologist working in public
schools. School-based practitioners and an Exceptional Children Director describe how educationally relevant evaluations are conducted, how IEP teams decide
the need for services, and how interventions for students with disabilities occur in the least restrictive school environment.
