As a special educator, you will be a member of a team of professionals, and family members who assess and determine if the student has a disability that impacts their access to education and is eligible for special education services.
The special education case manager is responsible for setting up meetings for this team and following a timeline for assessment and reevaluation meetings. The special education teacher has a role in the assessment process which includes contacting assessors, setting up meeting dates, assessing the student, and writing assessment reports.
