Determining if transportation as a related service is necessary for a student with a disability can be difficult. How do you decide what transportation services should be offered to ensure safety and FAPE in the least restrictive environment?

Transporting Students With Disabilities analyzes district transportation obligations under the IDEA, Section 504, and the ADA. This one-stop guide helps you take the helm on transportation issues involving: specialized equipment; evaluations and IEP meetings; parental reimbursement; harassment and discipline on school buses; private school students; field trips and extracurricular activities; student safety and protection; and much more.

Be confident in your decisions, no matter what transportation dilemma crosses your path, by learning how to:

  • Determine whether a student with a disability needs transportation services to receive FAPE
  • Assess a student's need for door-to-door service
  • Identify the least restrictive mode of transportation
  • Minimize the risk of injury to students with special needs
  • Communicate with parents to avoid disputes over transportation services

For easy reference, this pamphlet analyzes key transportation court cases and provides more than 70 new case summaries examining critical compliance issues.
