CL855: Special Education Law
Special Education Law provides you with an overview of key topics in the field by examining the statutes, agency regulations, and judicial decisions that have shaped special education. Topics include evaluations, eligibility, the meaning of a free and appropriate public education (FAPE), Individual Education Programs (IEPs), placement, least restrictive environment requirements, discipline, procedural safeguards, dispute resolution, Section 504/ADA, and remedies. The course will help you understand how the legal standards that govern these topics impact the services that schools must provide to students with disabilities. The course allows you to apply what you learn by discussing and addressing real-world situations through various problems and assessments. You will also go outside of the classroom materials to gather information about how special education law works in practice and in your state.
