Event Details

During the 2020-2021 school year, disability category criteria was updated for speech or language impairment, emotional behavioral disability, and deaf and hard of hearing, blind and visually impaired. In addition a new disability category and identification criteria was added to Wisconsin state rule for deafblind and an emergency rule was passed relating to identification of specific learning disability when students are located in a private or homeschool educational setting.  This presentation will review key aspects of updated criteria within the framework of a comprehensive special education evaluation.

  • Participants will learn which disability category criteria have been updated and added in the last year.
  • Participants will identify what parents need to know for each of the revised disability category criteria.
