Special Education Law, 3/e captures the evolving nature of special education legislation–from historic bases for special education services, to the first passage of IDEA, to the Improvement Act of 2004. Using carefully selected cases, it illustrates the background for each enacted law and offers case briefs with questions to prompt discussion. An in-depth look at six legislative principles untangles complex issues of free appropriate public education, nondiscriminatory evaluation, program development, least restrictive environment, procedural due process, and parental participation. Fully revised, this edition includes information on Rosa's Law, the latest CEC ethics standards, sections on RtI and EIS, and a new chapter on future issues in special education.
