Admission, Review, And Dismissal Committee (ARDC)
The Admission, Review, and Dismissal Committee (ARDC) makes important decisions regarding the education of a child with special needs. It creates an Individual Educational Program (IEP) which is a legal document that specifies the services needed for the child’s learning progress. This educational group is usually composed of the school administrator, a special education teacher, a general education teacher, an evaluator (usually a psychologist), and the parents. The child may also join the committee when he is mature enough to give suggestions.
