Julie Weatherly, Esq.What's Been Happening in Special Education Law: A Year in Review

The Year 2019 was another active year in the area of special education law, and a lot has happened since last year’s Hybrid Conference! Although IDEA and Section 504 have not changed in a very long time, there continues to be an enormous amount of litigation going on, as courts and federal agencies attempt to interpret and apply the laws’ provisions. In this session, I will update the audience on some of the nation's significant special education “legal happenings” during the past year, highlighting relevant court decisions and federal agency interpretations. At the end of the presentation, time will be devoted to Q&A with on-site and virtual Hybrid Conference attendees.
