- The stakeholders involved in the assessment process with explanations of why and how each is involved.
- How students are identified for assessment based on IDEA’s eligibility categories.
- Legal and ethical considerations related to the assessment process and establishing eligibility.
- At least three components of the comprehensive eligibility assessment process used to determine if there is a documented disability.
The brochure should include graphics that are relevant to the content, visually appealing, and use space appropriately.
Provide a minimum of three scholarly references.
