With IDEA 2004 and its accompanying regulations as its foundation, Special Education Law,  provides the most up-to-date and accurate information on the laws affecting the field of special education today. In a highly readable format, this comprehensive book enables readers to examine current legislation from a historical perspective and to understand the evolving nature of special education legislation and how it is interpreted by case law. In the revision, readers will find these welcome additions: A new chapter on “Discipline Concerns”; An expanded chapter on program development covering IFSPs, the extended school year, and IEPs; Discussion of the legal requirements under NCLB and how this law intersects with the requirements of IDEA 2004; More content tied directly to the standards and competencies designated by CEC, INTASC, and PRAXIS; More pedagogical elements such as reflection questions, additional case briefs, and relevant websites for further exploration.Although the authors chose to expand the original content, they retained many of the features that made it an excellent choice for students of special education law.
