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.


2. Anatomy of a Case

If you are interested legal issues, we hope you'll enjoy our new "Anatomy of a Case." Jordan Burriola, a young child with autism, was abruptly terminated from his day care center. As you read the documents in this case, you'll see how Jordan's attorney approached the case.

You can download the Complaint and Motion for a Preliminary Injunction and Memorandum, and his preparation for oral argument. Finally, you should read Mr. Zraik's analysis of the case and why it is so important.
