33 KEY POINTS If the student requires only accommodations, and not special education (specifically designed instruction), that student is not a student with a disability under IDEA. Such a student may be eligible for an accommodation plan under Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act. Contact your school or the Utah Parent Center for more information. Additional information is also available on the website of the Utah State Office of Education at
35 21B School districts may choose to use the Developmentally Delayed category (which is used in Early Intervention age 03) for children ages 3-7 instead of another category if the child meets the eligibility criteria. Significant changes were made in IDEA 2004 regarding the identification of students with specific learning disabilities. An LEA may use one of two methods or a combination of both for determining a student s eligibility. 1. A process based on the student response to scientific, research-based intervention. OR 2. Identification of a severe discrepancy between intellectual ability and achievement. OR 3. A combination of these. Parents who have questions about how this process works should not hesitate to bring their questions to the school. More detailed information can be found on the Utah State Office of Education website at Decisions about eligibility are made by a team that includes the parents. Parental input is considered. If the child is determined not eligible, parents have the right to disagree and use any of the dispute resolution remedies.
36 For more information on the rules regarding cochlear implants, please refer to the Utah Special Education Rules. B
38 24B While special education is free to the student, the student is still required to pay for school fees and expenses that typical students pay for.
40 26B Teachers and other school personnel are not held accountable if a child with a disability does not achieve the goals and objectives set forth in the IEP, but they are held accountable for providing the services outlined in the IEP. Refer to sample profiles and instructions in the appendix to record your thoughts and observations about your child. Completing a profile can help you to develop your list of concerns and priorities and can be a written form for sharing information about your child.
41 See Utah State Office of Education s parent booklet on writing health care plans for a sample health care plan. A copy may be requested from the Utah Parent Center. This information is also available at the Medical Home website,
42 27B The Utah Parent Center provides a workshop and written information on communication and conferencing skills. Call the UPC at or visit for more information.
43 28B The parent must receive a notice of meeting which indicates the purpose(s), time, and location of the meeting and who will be in attendance. It must also inform the parents of their right to bring other individuals who have knowledge or special expertise. The determination of who has knowledge or special expertise is up to the person who is doing the inviting, so parents may invite whomever they think will be helpful. It is important to inform the team ahead of time about additional people that you are inviting.
45 U U The Utah Parent Center has a specialty workshop on transition planning to help families plan for student s adult lives. A copy of From NO Where to Know Where, A Parent Handbook for the Transition to Adult Services may be obtained by contacting the Center at or
46 Staffs in some school districts have been trained in interest based negotiation. Interest based negotiation is a WINWIN process that helps groups to work together to address the interests or needs of all parties who are involved. The Utah Parent Center teaches a workshop called Negotiation and Advocacy Skills which gives instruction and practice in using interest based negotiation. Contact the Center for more information about upcoming workshops on this topic at or at
47 U U The Core Curriculum represents those standards of learning that are essential for all students. They are ideas, concepts, and skills that provide a foundation on which subsequent learning may be built. The Utah State Office of Education sets the standards which must be completed by all students K-12 as a requisite to graduate from Utah s secondary schools.
48 31B More information about transition is available in this handbook on page 55. The Utah Parent Center s From NO Where to KNOW Where Transition to Adult Services A Parent Handbook also has additional information on guardianship and other related topics.

50 37B Some of the considerations in the IEP may be embedded in a section of the IEP as a checkbox. Checking off the special considerations is a team decision. If you have a question about one of these considerations, be sure to bring it up at the IEP meeting.
51 39B 38B If parents disagree with any of the decisions made by the IEP team, all of the parental rights to dispute resolution remedies apply. These rights are explained in the Procedural Safeguards Notice. Additional information on problem solving can be found section 14 of this booklet.

53 ESY is not necessarily held in the same location as your child receives services during the regular school year, and is usually a shorter amount of time per day and per week. The purpose of ESY is to maintain skills so that the gains made during the regular school period will not be lost. The extent of the ESY program should be individualized according to the needs of your child.

57 45B 46B 47B U U U U School personnel should know how to write appropriate measurable annual goals. It is not necessarily the responsibility of the parents. However, having a good understanding of how the process works and what makes a good goal can help parents to be more knowledgeable

61 49B More information on accommodations in state and district assessments can be found in the Utah Performance Assessment System for Students Assessment Participation and Accommodations Policy. This information is available from the Utah State Office of Education and on their website, Parents should carefully examine school policies to determine whether modifications need to be made to accommodate the unique needs of their child.

76 60B 61B It is important to have the general education teacher participate when developing the Behavioral Intervention Plan. One of the functions of the general educator on the IEP team is to help determine appropriate positive behavioral interventions, supports and other strategies for the student. Parents should consider a Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavioral Intervention Plan for the IEP of any special education student who has behavior challenges. Using a BIP to include positive behavioral supports greatly lessens the likelihood of serious discipline problems and also provides better documentation of the child s needs in the event that an infraction does occur.
80 91B One way for parents to help facilitate and encourage the attendance of agency representatives at the IEP meeting is for the student or the parent to give the invitation. This may reduce the red tape the school faces in getting consent and may also persuade the representative that he or she is needed and welcome at the meeting. Transition goals may be included at an earlier age. This may be particularly important for students who are at risk for dropping out of school or for those individuals with the most significant disabilities.
81 64B B65
83 The Utah Parent Center also offers a workshop and companion parent handbook called From NO Where to KNOW Where Transition to Adult Services A Parent Handbook. The presentation and handbook provide detailed information on many topics related to transition planning. Please contact the Utah Parent Center at or
84 to obtain a copy of this handbook or to attend an upcoming workshop.
86 67B KEY POINTS The issuance of a regular high school diploma terminates a student s eligibility for public education services. Some agencies will not serve eligible adults with significant disabilities in day programs until the turn 22, even if they have graduated. A parent may not require the school district to withhold the issuance of a diploma until age 22 if the student with disabilities has met the graduation requirements. It is necessary to make an informed decision in selecting a graduation option and to make certain it is recorded on the IEP. This should reduce misunderstandings and clarify the time frame available to attain transition goals, including whether to graduate with peers or continue with additional schooling.
87 It is best to start working on amendments to graduation requirements before the student enters the 9 th grade (when credits start to count for graduation).
88 If graduation requirements as amended in the IEP are not completed due to factors that are not a direct manifestation of the student s disability, the student is not eligible to participate in graduation ceremonies or receive a diploma until the amended requirements are met. The local principal is authorized to make this decision.

100 At this point, it is critical to remember good communication skills. The old saying, You can catch more flies with honey, rings true in these situations. Be prepared to negotiate! Also, it is good to have support. Some people you might consider asking for support are: a friend or relative, an advocate, or a representative from a disability organization or support group, and /or legal representation.
