Abstract

The words due process typically trigger dread, anxiety, and perhaps anger for school administrators, teachers, and speech-language pathologists. We agree with Moore and Montgomery, that “…a due process hearing is like a court proceeding where evidence is presented and, ultimately, one side prevails. The general feeling about due process hearings is that, in the long run, no one really wins as there are so many hard feelings after these events” (2008, p. 317).
