    Early identification and referral of students with disabilities, particularly reading disabilities and behavioral/emotional disabilities, are essential ways to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Disciplinary interventions such as Behavior Intervention Plans, Functional Behavior Assessments, and manifestation determinations are key tools for keeping students in the classroom and out of prison.

    This program will identify the statutory tools available to attorneys and guardians ad litem to help identify educational disabilities and how to refer disabled students for assistance within the educational system. After completing this program, you will be able to: determine whether the student has a suspected disability; refer the student for evaluation for special education or accommodations; and assist the student's parents through the IEP/Section 504.

    In sum, you will learn how to:

    • Identify the special education laws impacting disabled students
    • Explain the procedures for referral, the categories of disabilities, and the identification and evaluation processes
    • Effectively use the procedural safeguards in IDEA and Section 504 when a disabled student is long-term suspended, expelled, and/or referred to the juvenile justice system

    Our esteemed panel for this program includes:

    • Ann Breen-Greco, Past Chair ABA Judicial Division, ALJ & Hearing Officer
    • Sarah E. Redfield, Professor of Law Emerita, UNH (COREJ appointee)
    • Stacey Bawtinhimer, Administrative Law Judge
