Price: $250.00


Presented by Melinda Jacobs, Esq.

Determining whether classroom or behavior problems stem from a potential disability, such as an emotional disturbance or merely from poor decision-making, continues to present significant dilemmas for school personnel tasked with assessing a student's eligibility under the IDEA or Section 504.

In this 90-minute audio conference, Melinda Jacobs, one of the nation's top special ed attorneys, guides you through recent case decisions, emerging trends, and best practices in this rapidly evolving and increasingly litigated area of the law. You'll learn:

  • How to distinguish between a "disadvantage" and a "disability" in making IDEA and Section 504 eligibility determinations
  • How federal courts typically view gang activities, illegal drug use and other criminal activities in eligibility cases
  • The factors used by courts to determine whether residential or other private placements are made for educational or noneducational reasons
  • How to appropriately consider a student's nonattendance in making IDEA and Section 504 eligibility decisions
  • How to determine Section 504 eligibility in view of the new "mitigating measures" regulations
  • And much more!
