October marks the beginning of Learning Disability Awareness Month. In the United States, 1 in 5 people has a learning disability—like dyslexia and ADHD. Understood is dedicated to supporting and shaping the world for kids that learn and think differently. Throughout the month, we plan to spread awareness, educate, and provide useful resources and tools to help families at every stage of their journey.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Special Education

Special Education

All students with disabilities who require special education services have Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). The IEP contains information about your child's interests, strengths, needs, goals, and educational program. It is a legal document that describes how the DOE will provide your child:

  • A Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)
  • In the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).
