Due Process Hearing Case Study
Bateman, David F.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v41 n4 p73-75 Mar-Apr 2009
William is 9 years of age, residing with his parent within the boundaries of an unnamed district ("the District"). As a student with autism he is eligible for special education programming and services. There was one issue presented for this due process hearing: What was the appropriate program and placement for him for the 2008-2009 school year? Specifically, should he be placed in general education at his neighborhood school or in a local private school whose mission is providing services for students with autism? This article discusses the history of William's case, its hearing, and the decision made by the court on his case.
