List and explain three instructional decisions that are made after a student has been found eligible for special education. Specialized Instruction: Includes modifications of instructional content, methods and delivery to meet the needs of students with disabilities. The team needs to ensure that these methods are supported and successful. IEP Annual Goals : Annual goals are included in the IEP for a student that is identified. They act as a guide in order to assist the team to assess what the expected growth the student should have by the end of that year. Related Services: Students are eligible for related services that allow for the development of skills in specific areas such as audiology, psychological services, physical and occupational therapy, recreation, counseling services, and medical services (Salvia, Ysseldyke, & Bolt, 2013). What constitutes a valid assessment under the IDEA? A valid assessment must be conducted by trained and knowledgeable personnel in accordance with the instructions given by the producer of the test. The test must also be delivered in a mode that is accessible for all students to not interfere with the validity of results. The test cannot be racially or culturally discriminatory and it should be administered in the child’s native language. (Salvia, et al., 2013) 1. Tests to be selected and administered so they are racially and culturally nondiscriminatory.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
