Empowering Families as Partners in the Least Restrictive Environment - A Presentation for Parents
This 32 minute webcast describes for parents the concept of the Least Restrict Environment (LRE) in which students with disabilities are educated. Special Education is a service, not a place. LRE indicates where special education service(s) take place, and how much students with disabilities are afforded the opportunity to learn alongside, and participate with, same-age peers who do not have disabilities. The webcast discusses federal and state regulations, how parents can get involved, and how to find your Local Educational Agency¹s (LEA) results on LRE monitoring. Resources and information on learning more about LRE are included.
