The world of special education has its own unique language. In an effort to help understanding, I am providing a link to a document borrowed from a consulting group. While this list is not exhaustive, it may be helpful with some basic terms. If in doubt, please don't hesitate to ask if a term is used that is not familiar. Your understanding is important as you are a vital part of the educational team.
