The nature of helping students with special needs is to move them along in the academic process, as best a possible, bringing them as close to grade-level mastery as possible. Since each student is unique and his/her needs are individual, the IEPs (Individual Education Plans) are critical so all the players know what is required and going on.

The team creates an educational plan, which includes accommodations and often technological tools are used.
