Abstract

Court decisions in special education lawsuits lay the foundation for decisions in Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings. Recent decisions are reviewed in this article in order that speech-language pathologists and other educators can remain current on judicial trends. Specific cases are landmark for making offers of placement, ensuring the presence of a general education teacher at the IEP meeting, which party bears the burden of proof in a due process hearing, procedural violations and denial of a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), and how the courts view a student's lack of progress in terms of a district's obligation to provide FAPE.
