Irving Independent School District, Petitioner v. Henri Tatro, et Ux., Individually and as Next Friend of Amber Tatro, a Minor. On Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circiut. No. 83-558.
Supreme Court of the U. S., Washington, DC.
A Supreme Court ruling is presented regarding the provision of clean intermittent catheterization as part of related services mandated under P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. The case argued focused on the needs of a young girl with spina bifida for intermittent catheterization to remove urine from her bladder. The court ruled that such catheterization is not a medical service but rather a related service under P.L. 94-142. The court further held that section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 was not applicable when relief is available under the Education of the Handicapped Act to remedy a denial of educational services.
