COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact on students with disabilities, resulting in yet another consideration for IEP’s - recovery services.
Recovery services are different from compensatory services. The following definition is taken from the Ohio Department of Education website:
“The term recovery services reflects the need of learners to recover from any educational gaps in learning caused by the unexpected school-building closures. Recovery services should be provided to students who had an interruption of services during the ordered school-building closure period in the 2019-2020 school year.” http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Reset-and-Restart/Students-with-Disabilities
Not all students will be eligible for recovery services, it’s on you to know and understand your child’s educational needs and the rights your child has.
