COVID-19: Providing Counseling as a Related Service

Reading Time: < 1 minute

This document provides guidance on how LEAs may plan to provide counseling as a related service to students that is required by their individualized education programs (IEPs). While LEAs may be able to implement many of the services described in students’ IEPs, they should communicate with families and document services not able to be provided due to the COVID-19 pandemic response to inform decisions regarding compensatory services that may be appropriate to provide when normal operations resume.
