New to NEAAAT?

Welcome, If you are new to NEAAAT and have questions about special education, please contact Carolyn Walton at 252-562-0653 ext. 108 or via email at

In order to make your student’s transition into NEAAAT go smoothly, it is very important to provide NEAAAT copies of the following information during registration:

  • Most recent psychoeducational report, eligibility, evaluation and/or reevaluation report;
  • Signed Consent for Services
  • Current individualized education program (IEP); and
  • Contact information for your student’s previous case manager or school district liason.

These items will support a successful transition between your student’s old school and NEAAAT and will ensure that appropriate services and supports are made available.

What to Expect

For in state students and new to NEAAAT:

School staff will begin implementing your student’s current NC on their first day of school. An invitation to review and revise your student’s IEP may be scheduled. The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss your student’s transition to a new school and to determine if any adjustments to the services and supports currently being provided are needed.

For out of state students:

Once you have shared your student’s special education records, school staff will invite you to a meeting to discuss comparable services, or services similar to or the same as, provided on your student’s most recent IEP. During the meeting, school staff will also describe the initial eligibility process that occurs when students move from out of state and the timeline in which an initial North Carolina (NC) IEP will be developed.
