Problems related to absences/truancy among special education students raises a host of legal issues under the IDEA, impacting child find, behavior intervention, and placement, among other areas. In this audio conference, veteran attorney Jose Martín will highlight recent legal cases to illustrate how schools can best respond to students' attendance issues, as well as which school-based practices should be avoided.
You and your staff will gain essential knowledge on ways to:
- Avoid costly child find lapses and common FAPE deprivation claims that can stem from student truancy issues
- Respond in a legally compliant fashion when addressing behavior issues and changes in placement for IDEA-covered students who frequently are absent from school
- Provide services to successfully address school refusal issues
- Address truancy in the IEP when needed to provide FAPE to students with disabilities
