Special Education: Procedural Safeguards for each State

So you think your child may need special education services or your child already receives services but you have some questions.  The first thing you want to do  is carefully read through your state's procedural safeguards.  I have compiled a list of links for each state here on this page. Your states procedural safeguards  will be a wealth of information, read them, make notes in them, put post its on important pages!  These will explain what it takes to qualify for special education services, the timelines and process involved, disciplining and answers to frequently asked questions.  This is the first place to go when you have a question or are unsure about something.  Do not rely on what the school will tell you, even the most good hearted, well meaning school personnel may give you incorrect information.  I have found that although the school may pass these out like candy, very few have actually read through or understand the procedural safeguards. 

Below are links to each state's procedural safeguards:

I will check the links periodically to ensure they are current and still working.  If any links above do not work or are out of date, feel free to let me know by using the contact form on the right or leave a comment!
