Best Special Education Software

Special education software provides tools for school teachers and administrators to manage the Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) of qualified special needs students.

Special education software is designed to handle all aspects of IEPs, which are meant to address each student’s unique educational needs and learning objectives with specific goals agreed upon by both educators and parents.

Special education software products are used throughout the education industry to help facilitate IEP compliance checks, evaluations, and other reporting features per state requirements. Many products also include features to streamline the production of IEPs and evaluation documents. Some special education tools track data related to disabilities, case management, and other relevant services for high visibility and quick progress reporting.

Special education software frequently integrates with student information system (SIS) software, while some features may be shared with study tools.

To qualify for inclusion in the Special Education category, a product must:

  • Provide features designed specifically for IEPs
  • Have intervention tools
  • Include personalized learning program
