After it is determined that the child is eligible for special education services under IDEA, a multidisciplinary team of specialists and the parents review the child's levels of functioning and develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) specifically designed to meet the child's educational needs in the least restrictive environment. The IEP team determines the appropriate placement, develops the education goals for the student, and discusses the student's progress.

The Virginia Department of Education provides a variety of supports to administrators, teachers and parents of children with disabilities.
