Description The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of private practitioner and educational advocate opinions on instructional leaders’ decision-making thought processes when making a recommendation for special education eligibility. School-based administrators (N = 56) with varying years of experience as a special education administrator participated in this study. Using data from a series of vignettes and from structured interviews, results indicated that private practitioners and educational advocates significantly influence administrators’ recommendations for special education eligibility.
