Iowa Area Education Agencies

My child doesn't seem to be developing like other children. I'm concerned. What should I do?

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) clearly states that parents can request an evaluation at any time to determine if their child has a disability and needs special education services. When parents request an evaluation of their child, the team will gather to examine the evidence and consider suspicion of disability. If evidence exists indicating that there is not a disability, parents will receive a written refusal to conduct the evaluation. If a disability is suspected, the parent will be asked to sign consent and an evaluation will be conducted.

About AEAs
Iowa Area Education Agencies (AEAs) were created in 1974 by the Iowa legislature to ensure equal educational opportunities for all children from birth through age 21. As regional service agencies, AEAs provide special education and school improvement services for students, families, teachers, administrators, and their communities.
