Where will a child receive his/her special education and related services?

A child who is eligible for special education and related services, if possible, must be educated with his/her non-disabled peers in the general education class in the school that the child would attend if he/she did not have a disability. This is called the LRE or least restrictive environment. If the child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), with the use of extra aids and services, cannot be given in the school that the child would have attended, the Planning and Placement Team (PPT) must find the right educational placement for the child as close as possible to the child’s home.
