The Special Education Glossary was created in 2015. I walked into a team meeting and saw one of our SPED TECs, Ronnie Kessler, had written all of the acronyms on the white board so that parents and guardians had a visual to refer to during team meetings. I asked another SPED TEC, Natalia Kierul, who has experience in graphic design, to create a poster and our special education glossary was born. Since the 2015 version, we updated it in 2018 to reflect current general education assessments.
