Young primary-grade students who are retained are unlikely to receive special education services, study suggests

From the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine:

Most children retained in K/1 or third grade for academic reasons, including many of those who demonstrated sustained academic difficulties, never received an IEP during elementary school. Further studies are important to elucidate whether retained elementary schoolchildren are being denied their rights to special education services (Silverstein, Guppy, Young & Augustyn, 2009).
