Autism and the Law: What Cases Tell Us About Programming and Services

Price: $250.00


Presented by Melinda Jacobs, Esq.

The provision of appropriate educational services to students with autism has been the most frequently litigated IDEA issue in the past decade -- and likely into the future. Disputes run the gamut of themes from private placement/instruction and methodology, to discipline, eligibility and LRE. In most cases, there are process and content successes or errors that are pivotal to whether the school district wins or loses.

Renowned special education attorney Melinda Jacobs takes you on a commonsense journey through recent autism case law, breaking down what went right and what went wrong in terms of the school district’s position and ability to defend its programs and actions.

You'll learn what to do and what not to do, and get answers to these questions:

  • What are the most common procedural blunders that school districts make?
  • What are the most common program/content mistakes that school districts make?
  • How can a school district ensure a successful defense of its programs for students with autism?
  • What essential elements are necessary to ensure appropriate programming for students with autism?
  • What are the current trends in the court cases?
  • And more
