Chapters (links will open in YouTube):
- Overview of Special Ed and Related Law
- Individualized Education Program: Eligibility Process
- Individualized Education Program: Breaking it Down
As the state of Illinois continues to operate without a budget there has arisen a larger need on the part of students and families for legal advocacy.
This course is part one of three courses meant to provide attorneys with a broad overview of special education law and school discipline law in Illinois. In part one participants will learn legal and educational jargon, the applicable federal and state laws in special education law, the requirements of a 504 plan verse an Individual Education Program (IEP), and the parts of a successful IEP. Participants will also consider and apply their new knowledge to two case study examples.
Note: This video could fulfill a new CLE requirement. Pursuant to Amended Supreme Court Rule 794(d), Illinois attorneys are required to complete one hour of diversity and inclusion CLE as part of the six-hour Professional Responsibility CLE requirement. The rule change is effective July 1, 2017, and begins with attorneys with the two-year reporting period ending June 30, 2019.
