School Districts shall establish and implement intervention and referral services designed to assist students who are experiencing significant LEARNING, BEHAVIOR or HEALTH difficulties in the regular education program Katie

It is possible that a fully institutionalized program of I&RS that targets its resources to the identification and amelioration of problems at the earliest possible stages of problem identification would never or rarely function as a pre-referral mechanism for CST evaluations. Collaborative Team Approach Katie

IDEIA has 4 parts: A & B (we care most about) cover eligibility, procedures and required services from ages 3-21, Part C covers infants & toddlers, Part D covers national activities to improve education for children with disabilities. 504 prohibits discrimination against any person with a disability by any federally funded agency and organization. It requires states to provide programs for eligible students with disabilities that are equal to those for students without disabilities.
