Special Education Teacher and General Education Teacher Interviews

The role of the special education teacher is collaborative and requires a specific skill set and understanding of the laws and regulations related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the IEP process, and implementation of the IEP. Additionally, special education teachers frequently collaborate, communicate, and co-teach with general education teachers to provide educational services for students with exceptionalities. Developing understanding of the roles and responsibilities of special and general education teachers in the IEP process and delivery of services to students with exceptionalities is of primary importance in professional practice.
Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Because this course does not require you to have a fingerprint clearance card, if you are not a current teacher your field experience must be completed before or after school, or during another designated time when students are not present.
In person or via phone, interview a certified special education teacher and a general education teacher specific to a grade range relevant to your program of study. Your interview notes will be submitted as part of the assignment deliverable.

Explaining IDEA and the IEP Process

As a teacher, you will encounter all kinds of students, including some with exceptionalities who are legally entitled to receive special education services. Knowledge of the laws that govern special education is essential in professional practice. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) outlines these laws and provides the framework in which teachers must operate to provide educational services for individuals with disabilities. The ability to share and articulate these steps to parents/guardians and students is essential to establishing mutual expectations and ongoing communication that supports the development and achievement of students with disabilities.
Part 1
Imagine you are a teacher for a student who has been referred for a special education evaluation. The parent has agreed to the evaluation but is unfamiliar with IDEA and the IEP process and wants to meet to learn more about these topics.
Create a simple visual that summarizes the 12 key components of IDEA. This visual could be a 1-2 page handout, chart, brochure, etc. and should provide the reader with a clear understanding of key terms and processes associated with IEPs. Include IDEA citations relevant to each component.
The visual should address the following .
Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)
Least Restrictive Environment (LRE)
Referral Process
Evaluation Process
Eligibility Determination
IEP Components
Parent and Student Involvement
Quarterly Progress Monitoring
Annual Review Process
Procedural Safeguards
Prior Written Notice
Related Services
Part 2
Using the information from the visual created in Part 1, create a 3-5 minute video to describe the IEP process to the parent/guardian. Review the “Professional Dispositions of Learners” and the “Model Code of Ethics for Educators (MCEE))” before completing this assignment and exhibit professionalism in your speech and appearance.
The video should address the following.
Parent/guardian and student involvement in the IEP process
Referral
Evaluation
Eligibility
Components of the IEP
Expectations for ongoing communication between the teacher, school, and parent/guardian to support the development and achievement of the student.
Discussion of the ethical responsibilities the teacher has as to uphold the integrity of the profession as part of the IEP process.
Use an online video platform such as Loom, YouTube, or Vimeo to upload your completed video. Ensure that others can access and view your linked video prior to submission.
Support the assignment with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
Submit the visual and link to the video.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success enter.
This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
