Special education in private schools

Children in private or religious schools have to be assessed by the home school district for consideration for special education services. If special ed services are deemed necessary, the child needs to be enrolled in her local public school. If the parents do not want to move the child from the private school, they attend a meeting to discuss a Private School Service Plan. This allows for the child to stay in his private school and receive one service equal to about $500 per school year. Examples of these services are speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, or special education teacher consultation. Also, private schools can but are not required to implement accommodations or a 504 Plan.

Our children are all individuals - they are not our property but people in their own right.
