Special Education Support Forms & Guidance

    Special Education in Michigan
    Students are eligible for special education and/or related services if they have been evaluated and determined by the district (with input from the parent) to have a cognitive impairment, emotional impairment, hearing impairment, visual impairment, physical impairment, other health impairment, speech and language impairment, early childhood developmental delay, specific learning disability, severe multiple impairment, autism spectrum disorder, traumatic brain injury, or deaf-blindness. Special Education in Michigan is regulated by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Michigan Administrative Rules for Special Education (MARSE).
