Our school district has decided to discontinue services for our year-old daughter. What steps can I take in challenging this decision? I have an year-old daughter who has been placed by our district in a private school for children with learning disabilities for the last six years.
She has complex learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, and other health impairments. She will not be receiving a diploma at the graduation ceremonies, and so we are looking to the district to continue support at a post secondary school.
The district feels does not want to do that. However, the rest of the IEP team, including her private counselor and psychiatrist, do not agree.
We have put in a written letter that we do not agree with the district decision. What can I do if the district does not want to pay for a post secondary residential school placement, but the rest of the team feels it is necessary and appropriate?
First, while all participants in the IEP team meetings are theoretically part of the IEP team, the school staff controls the decision of the district. If the parents and their outside consultants disagree, this should be documented.
While your letter serves as documentation, in most states it does not have any legal impact in forcing the school to do what you want.
However, the parents' recourse is to request a due process hearing to challenge the school's decision. If the post- secondary school is a special education program approved to provide ongoing services to students in need of continuing special education services, there will be a greater chance of getting funding from the school or a hearing officer.
If the school is a regular post- secondary school, it is very difficult to get public school funding for such placements. You should also be aware that if your student accepts the regular education diploma for high school, the school district's responsibilities are terminated in most states.
The only ways to maintain school district responsibility under these circumstances, assuming they are not willing to delay graduation, are 1 to request a due process hearing prior to graduation.
This generally has the effect of blocking the graduation until the administrative hearing process is concluded; or 2 pursue compensatory services after graduation. However, this will generally require a due process hearing as well. You should seek help from a knowledgeable special education attorney to assess your position.
Could executive functioning disorder qualify a child for special education services? Do you have any information on whether or not schools find students eligible for special education services when their primary issue is executive dysfunction?
If so, what category are they found eligible under i. There are 13 categories of disability under the IDEA. Executive functioning EF is not listed as one of these categories. Further, EF disorder is an evolving condition that is not yet fully recognized within the medical community.
Generally, it is currently seen as a problem related to or under the constellation of symptoms of ADHD.
Even if there isn't an ADHD diagnosis, if is the EF disorder is diagnosed by competent mental health professionals, it may fit under the Other Health Impaired category if the clinician can demonstrate how it results in limited ability to attend to educational tasks due to excessive distraction or attention to other things going on.
It would be a less obvious fit under the Learning Disability category, unless it can be clinically documented as a processing disorder impacting one of the basic processes of learning, e.
Even if the school does not feel your child meets criteria for IDEA eligibility, if you have clinical documentation of the EF disorder and evidence that it substantially impacts one or more life activities at school, your child may be eligible for a Section plan and could get accommodations for the EF disorder under the plan.
Much or all of what your child may need could be provided under a plan as well as under an IEP.The ELA Frameworks have been designed to give educators an idea of what instruction across one year might look like in any one grade level.
These units are also designed to: 1) demonstrate how all of the standards are introduced and revisited within one year and 2) demonstrate how the reading, writing, and listening/speaking/viewing standards are integrated within a single unit of study.
