Collaboration with families/specialist
The Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team (MET) often includes educational specialists who can provide direct input regarding which assessments should be administered to students for determining special education eligibility and making placement decisions. Students with specific documented needs in areas such as speech-language, gross/fine motor, and social-emotional behaviors require specialists to be included to ensure that the assessment results are properly analyzed. In turn, specific individualized services and supports are considered so that students may access the general education setting and curriculum. Teachers should have working knowledge of the assessments administered by specialists and understand the rationale for their inclusion on the MET. This will aid their understanding of the applications of specialized assessment results to the classroom and subsequent collaboration with families.
