Summary

Eighteen case studies capture important issues within the IDEA and NCLB legislations and provide real-life context for studying special education and the law. Topics include accountability; participation in high stakes assessment; the referral and prereferral process; zero reject, child find and discipline; nondiscriminatory assessment; appropriate education and IEPs; least restrictive environment; due process; and parent participation. Readers will see a variety of students, issues and interventions (both best practice and less than best practice) and have opportunities to examine the legal issues and other issues behind each case.
