IEPs, 504 Plans, and the New Educational Landscape

Featuring Richard Weinfeld

As they reopened after COVID, schools needed to pay particular attention to helping students with special educational needs resume progress in their learning. Questions for parents and educators to consider include:

  1. What progress did the student make on their existing goals during distance learning?
  2. What new areas may now be areas of need?
  3. What should be included in a meaningful recovery plan to address the progress that was lost?
