Outside Contractors & PATINS Services
It has come to our attention that some Indiana public LEA’s are utilizing outside contractors (both in-state and out-of-state) for the provision of services that include speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy, behavior therapy, etc. PATINS values these service providers and the important work they are doing with Indiana students. However, we must require that all requests for PATINS direct services, such as borrowing from our Lending Library or requesting a training, come to us directly from an Indiana public LEA employee for Indiana public school students. Please contact Daniel McNulty should you have any questions.
In light of concerns expressed by the educational community in Indiana and especially concerns noted on a Learning Connections thread, the Indiana Resource Network (IRN) members want to share the following information regarding accommodations and assessments.
