What are "related services?"
Any child with a disability who qualifies for an IEP may, in the process, be considered for related services. If it is clear before the IEP meeting that related services will part of the discussion, the professional who will provide the services may be part of the team that develops the IEP. You – the parent – may invite a related services professional to attend the IEP meeting and participate.
Here are some of the related services that are typically provided to children qualifying for an IEP:
Early identification and assessment of disabilities in children
Orientation and mobility services
Parent counseling and training
Rehabilitation counseling services
School health services
Social work services in schools
Speech-language pathology services
