Upon completion of the full and individual evaluation, the ARD committee must determine whether:

  • The child has a disability; and
  • Who, by reason thereof, needs special education and related services. If it is determined, through an appropriate evaluation under the full and individual evaluation guidelines, that a child has one of the disabilities but only needs a related service and not special education, the child is not a child with a disability under IDEA.
