About the Policy
The special rights policy intends to clarify the referral and diagnosis process, and the role of the individuals involved in the student’s learning, including the parents. It provides information for both teachers and parents about the services provided and the limits of these services. Finally, the policy states that parents have the right to decide whether or not they would like to enroll their child within this service; however, in the case that they do not, parents are asked to sign a liability form.
