Workshop Description:

This workshop will focus on Special Education Law and cases which impact and influence ALL students and students with disabilities in K-12 public schools. Reviewing and interpreting the progression of how we got to where we are today in terms of adhering to Special Education Law is critical, as is deciphering those laws to best meet the needs of students with IEPs and 504 plans, especially when they are mainstreamed and in cooperative consultative models. Special Education Teachers, General Education Teachers, and Related Services Personnel must be familiar with the laws and cases which affect the daily instruction of students with disabilities both academically and behaviorally because these laws and cases impact ALL students.

Dr. Weintraub will provide and share community resources for students with disabilities in the Las Vegas area including F.E.A.T., ATAP, Desert Regional Center, Nevada PEP, Miracle League of Las Vegas, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada and more.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Review landmark Special education laws which helped shape the U.S. school system including: Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Education for All Handicapped Children Act (EHA), Assistive Technology Act, and the Handicapped Children’s Protection Act (HCPA).
  • Analyze and break down pivotal cases in Special Education and discuss their implications for students with disabilities. Some of the cases we will review are Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District, Honig v. Doe, Board of Education v. Rowley, Goss v. Lopez, and Rogich et al v. Clark County School District.
  • Be familiar with means of providing resources and support for students in the Las Vegas with disabilities including support for parents of students with Autism, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy, education advocacy groups, and statewide programs which provide assistance and funding for services.
  • Review best practices for instructional delivery in cooperative consultative/mainstreamed classrooms so that ALL students benefit from high quality instructional delivery.
