Domain Exemptions: Guidance for IEP Teams
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.
Each webinar will contain new information and will be recorded and posted.
