Any Time, Any Place 1 SOMDG HURLBURT FIELD Special Needs Identification and Assignment Coordination Process (SNIAC) 26 August Lt Corey D. Carnes Special Needs Coordinator Phone: 881:5061
Any Time, Any Place A mandatory program for all active duty service members who have a family member with special medical, educational, or behavioral needs - This program assists Air Force Personnel Center (AFPC) in assigning sponsors to areas where family members medical or educational needs can be accommodated What is SNIAC?
Any Time, Any Place A diagnosis of ADD/ADHD Requires special medical or adaptive equipment (i.e. nebulizer, wheelchair, home oxygen therapy, etc.) Has developmental delay or requires special education, as specified on IEP (Individualized Education Plan) or IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan) See , page 3, block 4.a for a list of services Enrollment in SNIAC
Any Time, Any Place DD FORM Page 2 is completed by Air Force member or spouse (parents of student)
Any Time, Any Place DD FORM (cont.) Page 3, items 3 -6, are to be completed by school or early intervention staff. Page 3, items 1-2, are to be completed by parents. Item 1.a. is release of information from parent to school. If a child does not receive services mark (x) No in blocks 3.a.-e., complete block 6 (school information) and return to parent.
Any Time, Any Place DD FORM (cont.) If yes is marked in items 3.b. or c., remainder of form must be completed. *please attach current IFSP or IEP Item 4.a.-b. Eligibility Criteria. Mark only one. (Codes in 4.a. are for Army coding only.) Item 4.c. Identify the disability, if known. (For example, blindness, autism, PDD.) Item 5. Severity. Mark only one.
Any Time, Any Place The Form is a Department of Defense form and is not easy to follow? The school is responsible for completing only page 3 of the DD FORM The form is currently under revision and a more user friendly version is set for release in Nov The child is home schooled or between the ages of 3-5. Not enrolled in the school The Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA) entitles that these children are eligible for special education services through their local school. If the child has never been evaluated, is not currently receiving services, and/or has no identified needs that the school has been made aware of…there is no liability attached. The form can be completed by the school. If the child does not receive services and has no special needs identified, the school can elect to leave the form blank and simply write a letter (on official letterhead) stating that : named child has no identified special needs and is not receiving services at this time. Air Force preference would be that the school official completes the DD FORM and marks no to all responses on item 3, skips to item 6, and returns form to parent. Common Concerns
