In general the term Related Service means: “services designed to enable a child with a disability to receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) as described in the Individualized Education Program (IEP) as may be required to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education.” Some common Related Services most people are familiar with include Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Transportation. The following list describes ten Related Services parents may not know about:

Communication skills. How can parents encourage them in kids with special needs who are non-verbal? A post at Austisable (www.autisable.com) offers answers for parents asking that question. Communication Ideas for Parents The folks at Autisable asked speech experts to share their best tips for parents, and they came up with these seven suggestions. Although they are made with an eye towards kids with autism, they have value for kids with a variety of special needs.

The school evaluated my child and I don’t agree with the results. What can I do? Will I have to pay for another evaluation? Who will do the evaluation? If you disagree with the school district’s evaluation and/or recommendations, you have the right to request an Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE) at the school district’s expense.

Social skill is not a “service” but a functional skill necessary for daily living activities. Learn what the IDEA, the federal regulations, and the Commentary say about Present Levels of Functional Performance and IEP goals for functional skills.
