This updated and expanded resource gives you comprehensive legal guidance concerning students with disabilities - including asthma and diabetes - who participate in athletics and extracurricular activities, with an emphasis on your district's requirements to provide an equal opportunity and an environment free from discrimination.

Chapters include: Extracurricular Activities: An Overview of IDEA and Section 504 Participation Requirements; Athletics and Interscholastic Sports; Field Trips and Excursions; Clubs, Special Interest Groups, Social Events and Related Activities; and Participation of Students with Disabilities in Other Non-educational Activities.

What’s more, you learn:

  • Circumstances under which your district could face liability when another entity - such as an interscholastic athletic association - discriminates on the basis of a student’s disability
  • How the IDEA and Section 504 apply to various extracurricular activities
  • And much more

In addition to recent case summaries, full text of the latest OCR Letters of Findings and OSEP guidance, you also get an expanded discussion of issues relating to: interscholastic athletic eligibility, notice and services for participation in field trips and class excursions, and participation with nondisabled students at lunch and recess.
