Changes in Legislation, Research, and Education Other authoritative changes… .. Financing early interceding administrations Recognition of the significance of new innovation Assistive innovation Universal outline for learning Summary of Performance (SOP), a hierarchical apparatus for postsecondary move wanting to give data about the understudy\'s secondary school involvement and the backings required in the following period of life (e.g., school or profession).

Slide 12

Slide 15

Changes in Legislation, Research, and Education (con\'t)… Development of individual move arrange (ITP) has changed from age 14 to age 16 years (IDEA 2004) Concern about the shorter arranging time to bolster a fruitful move from secondary school for every understudy Shift to SOP for revealing understudy scholarly accomplishment and utilitarian execution rather than the already commanded re-assessment Discourage utilization of a serious disparity amongst accomplishment and capacity Reduce dependence on a solitary information source Technological advances streamline and institutionalize information gathering
