Course Description:

The educational rights of students with disabilities and the obligations of school personnel are constantly evolving due to changes in federal and state law and their interpretation. This seminar will provide you with essential and up-to-date information about federal and state special education laws, administrative and judicial rulings interpreting these laws, and current compliance issues. It is essential for educators to know these legal requirements and understand how these requirements impact their day-to-day activities and the students they serve.

This seminar provides practical recommendations for planning proactively to avoid common legal mistakes made by educators when it comes to students with disabilities. Seminar topics include: evaluation and eligibility determinations (including the role of “Rtl” in the SLD evaluation and eligibility determination process), development of IEPs, discipline procedures, transition planning, assistive technology, bullying, and student records.
  1. Identify the factors that may indicate a duty to evaluate and proper responses to requests for evaluations and reevaluations.
  2. Recognize common errors in IEP construction.
  3. Analyze when assistive technology is needed.
  4. Determine the essential components of a transition plan.
  5. Identify common errors in behavioral planning for and discipline of students with disabilities.
  6. Recognize bullying as a special education issue.
  7. Identify confidentiality issues that face teachers and administrators.
  8. Compare and contrast IDEA and Section 504 requirements.
  9. Summarize recent Indiana and federal rulings.
