What is an ARD/IEP? An ARD (Admission, Review, Dismissal) is a meeting consisting of special education personnel, school administration, general education teacher, and student’s caregiver(s) to determine whether a student is eligible for special education services provided by the school and then to develop the IEP (Individualized Education Plan) for the student. This service can be provided whether you are a client of Little Spurs or not via the private pay option as insurance does not cover educational assistance as part of their ABA program. If you are not a client of Little Spurs, the private pay fee will include review of materials, meeting with parents, and in person BCBA attendance at the ARD meeting. If you are a client of Little Spurs, a parent meeting will be held in preparation of the meeting.
