Related Services

In conjunction with special education services, there are related services that may or may not be necessary. The determination of need for these services is made by the IEP team after a student is determined eligible for services. Related services may include: 

Speech/Langauge Therapy:                        

While it is possible for a student to be on a Speech only IEP, this may also be a related service in conjunction with other special education services.. Speech services may address language, articulation, or other communciation related concerns.

Occupational Therapy (OT):

This service is provided as part of an IEP and is not a qualifying area by itself. Occupational Therapy focuses on improving the fine motor skills required to be successful within the school environment.

Physical Therapy (PT):

Like OT, this service can only be provided as part of an IEP, and is not, in of itself, a qualifying area. Physical Therapy focuses on improving the gross motor skills required to be successful within the school environment.

Transportation:     

Some disabilities restrict the transportation options of a student. In these cases, the team may decide that including specialized transportation requirements be included in an IEP.
