The Educational Benefit Review (EBR) training is designed for Intermediate Unit Training and Consultation (TaC) staff to discuss the components of the EBR process. This training will assist IU TaC in their work with Local Education Agency (LEA) teams to ensure Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) are reasonably calculated for students to receive educational benefit. Additionally, during this session, IU TaC will be provided with updates on both the legal and regulatory basis for EBR, giving them access to tools to support LEAs through the process and provide guidance for improving educational benefit for students with disabilities.


Participants will:
1. Identify the legal basis for the Educational Benefit Review (EBR)
2. Describe the four-step process utilized in reviewing Educational Benefit Review (EBR)
3. Analyze and compare three consecutive IEPs for a student to determine if s/he has received educational benefit
4. Identify elements of best practice that may be utilized to ensure educational benefit within IEP documentation.
