What can a parent or caregiver expect at the first PPT meeting?

The first PPT meeting will document the referral to special education and will discuss the evaluation process.

The team will look at information that is already available about how the child is doing in school, including areas of strength, and will decide if more information is needed. A PPT may decide that a child does not need further evaluation.

Parents and caregivers should receive information in their native language or mode of communication on their first referral or request for evaluation.

Connecticut parents and caregivers should be given written notice at least five days before the PPT meeting.
