Domain Exemptions: Guidance for IEP Teams
Recorded Webinar
Domain Exemption is the term we use to allow students to not test in a specific domain of language (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) due to a disability associated with that domain. This 13 minute video will provide IEP teams with guidance on making the decision around exempting a student from a language domain during ELP assessments. This module provides criteria for decision making as well as example scenarios.

Supplemental Materials
Each webinar will contain new information and will be recorded and posted.
