Need help understanding the world of Special Education? How about a dictionary for all of those Special Education terms and acronyms? Access to important updates? Your FDLRS Center can get you connected to all of those resources in one easy place!

Special Ed Connection® is a web-based resource that parents can use to gain an understanding of what special education is and how it works, as their child enters, progresses through and exits the world of special education requirements. From legal rights to practical application and from student referrals to IEPs, Special Ed Connection® explains specific procedures and provides real-world application strategies so parents can learn the complexities surrounding special education supports and services.
