In this highly interactive session, special education law expert Jim Gerl will present an update on major developments in the law including the two recent supreme court decisions as well as certain select hot button issues in special education law including the following: bullying; seclusion/restraint; bad economy; autism; mediation; etc. Rather than present hundreds of cases about special education, this session will focus on a much smaller number of leading decisions on the more interesting hot topics. Participants will participate in the session and will learn about the Supreme Court decisions and other important court decisions, hearing officer rulings and OSEP guidance on key topics that are at the forefront of special education law. Best practices for keeping up to date on legal developments will be discussed.
