1. Wrightslaw Game Plan: Resolve an Eligibility Dispute
Eligibility is a problem many parents face. In most cases, it is undisputed that the child has a disability. But the parent and school disagree about whether the child is eligible for services under the IDEA.
How are eligibility decisions made? How can parents deal with these issues? We devised a Wrightslaw Eligibility Game Plan to help you resolve eligibility disputes. Get the Eligibility Game Plan when you visit our site.
