Special education | Education homework help

This is a Block I Field Experience. In this block, your field experience must be completed before or after school, or other designated times when students are not present.  Allocate at least 2.5 hours to complete this field experience.  Interview an administrator, at the educational level (PK- 12) of your program, about the IEP process and special education services.  What are the characteristics of individuals with exceptionalities that you serve (including gifted as well as those with disabilities)? What are the educational, developmental, and medical services available for individuals with exceptionalities on your campus? What do you do to support both special education and general education teachers in the IEP process? What other stakeholders do you bring into the IEP process for collaboration purposes? What professional development is available for staff regarding special education policies, services, and educational strategies? Is there training specifically on confidentiality on your campus? If so, who leads this training, and how often is it required with your staff? What do you do to support families of individuals with exceptionalities? What do you do, as an administrator, to stay current on special education law? What is the process of handling behavioral issues for individuals with exceptionalities? In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon your interview and explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice, citing specifically how you plan to collaborate with administrators.  Submit your interview transcript and summary as one deliverable.  Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
