This webinar will examine a case study involving a 10-year-old student with a language-based learning disability. The student is currently in a public school program, but the parents believe the student could be doing better. They are considering an out of district private placement. The legal framework for the case as well as practical questions and key analytical factors in determining which placement is appropriate legally will be explored with ample time for questions and comments.
This course is appropriate for educators at all levels.
All necessary materials will be shared electronically.
