Special Education Law: Case Summaries and Federal Regulations.
Thomas, Stephen B.; Denzinger, Carol A.
This document presents summaries of state and federal special education court cases from approximately 1980 through 1992 and the federal regulations for Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as amended through March 1993. Cases are grouped by issue addressed and include a citation and a one-paragraph summary of the decision. The following seven major topics are covered (with sample subtopics in parentheses): (1) qualification for services (residency, age, and qualification under IDEA); (2) due process procedures (Individualized Education Program development and review, notification and consent requirements, and judicial review); (3) student placement (appropriate placement/services, length of day and year, least restrictive environment); (4) related services (psychiatric services and psychotherapy, nursing care, and transportation); (5) disciplining students with disabilities (corporal punishment, suspension, and disciplinary program incorporated into the Individualized Education Program); (6) relief under IDEA (reimbursement for private services, attorney fees, and compensatory education); and (7) financial issues (equal protection, state funding, and state immunity). Additional sections summarize cases specific to preschool, higher education, and employment. A table lists cases alphabetically. The IDEA Part B regulations are presented in the order of the law's various sections. (DB)
