Being told that your child no longer qualifies for some or all the current special education services that they are receiving elicits mixed emotions from parents. Sometimes the news from the school is greeted with excitement that your child has reached a level of achievement and independence that no longer necessitates the need for these services.
The other reaction when delivered the news of termination of some or all services is fear, mortification and the belief that the decision by the school was subjective, and not based on a comprehensive evaluation process.
This article will focus on the protections built into the law and the steps parents need to follow when they believe special education services should not have been limited or terminated.
