When someone thinks a child may have a disability and a need for special education and related services, a referral can be made to see the child is eligible for services.

- Participants will be able to specify who should be on an IEP Team and the IEP team’s jobs.
- Participants will be able to identify where a referral fits in the special education timeline.
