Special Education

Parents need not wait until their child’s first school year to start receiving special education services. Under federal law, children as young as 3-years-old are eligible for a special education assessment from their local public school district. This is true even if parents intend on homeschooling or enrolling their child in a private or parochial school. Find out more about special education in this radio interview with WFYI and IYI President & CEO Bill Stanczykiewicz and in IYI's Monthly Column for August. 

Listen to past WFYI interviews:

July - Decline of Sports Leagues
