The state superintendent has identified a stakeholder task force to make recommendations on how "response to intervention" relates to eligibility criteria for specific learning disabilities, and the relationship between "response to intervention" and early intervening services (EIS). Under IDEA 2004, LEAs are permitted to expend up to 15% of IDEA flow-through funds to develop coordinated, early intervening services.

WDPI has collected prevalence data on the number of children receiving special education services based on the educational determination of autism as the primary area of impairment since 1992. Data was not collected for the area of autism prior to 1992 as this special education identification category did not exist in state or federal special education law until 1992.
Members are appointed by the state superintendent for alternating three-year terms beginning in September of each year. The membership requirements for the Council on Special Education were changed with the reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Amendments of 1997 [Sec.612 (a)(21)]. Membership includes the following representation:
