In July 2007, the Chief Administrators of Iowa's Area Education Agency's charged the AEA Directors of Special Education with developing state-wide Special Education Procedures. Child Find, the process by which students with disabilities are located, evaluated, and identified as needing special education services, is a major component of Special Education Procedures, and has far reaching impact on Iowa's AEAs, local school districts, and the Department of Education. The attached documents provide additional information about the adopted procedures, their impact on various constituencies, and the AEAs plans for implementation and communication.
