School counselors, along with principals, are throughout the United States the individuals primarily responsible for ensuring that students who require classroom accommodations under a Section 504 Plan are appropriately serviced. Counselors also sit on multidisciplinary team meetings, crisis intervention teams, and individualized education program (IEP) team--and are essential to the development of school wide positive behavior support programs. However, many school counselors do not have a background in special education strategies and best practices. This revised edition of What School Counselors Need to Know About Special Education provides counselors (and school administrators) with essential information to make the most of their participation in providing special education services.
