3 to 21 years old

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires all States and Territories to provide special education services to children who are from 3 through 21 year of age. Each local school district has a special education director, and each school should have a case study committee or school based committee (terms differ) that attends to special education students’ needs.

Parents of children receiving special education and related services should hand-carry all pertinent school and medical documents to include their children’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) and current testing and evaluation reports to the new school.

The IDEA requires that if a child transfers to a district in the same state, the receiving school must provide comparable services to those in the child’s IEP from the sending district’s until the new school develops and implements a new IEP. If a child transfers to another State, the receiving district must provide comparable services to those in the child’s IEP from the sending district until the receiving district completes an evaluation and creates a new IEP.
