PRIMARY FUNCTION: Team members of the Multi-Disciplinary Evaluation/Individual Education Plan (MDE/IEP) program are responsible for conducting MDE and writing an Evaluation Report (ER) for each child that is assessed. The teacher on the Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) is responsible for assessing and documenting the child's developmental strengths and weaknesses in the ER, and along with the other members of the MDT, the teacher determines whether or not the child meets preschool special education service eligibility requirements based on the state's criteria. In addition to administering standardized assessments, the teacher will observe the child and interview parents and other professionals working with the child. Once a child has been determined to be eligible for preschool special education services, the teacher is responsible for developing strategies and goals that can be shared and discussed when participating in that child's IEP meeting.
