New Ruling on Extended School Year (ESY - Summer) services

Today on the blog:  New Ruling on Extended School Year Services:

It's that time of year when parents start to really begin to worry about summer and what their kids will do. If you haven't started planning your child's ESY (Extended School Year) services yet, call that PPT meeting NOW. A few very important resources to review prior to your discussion about these important services for our kids with ASD. First, review the Topic Brief from the Bureau of Special Education regarding the issue to be addressed when determining eligibility for these services. It's not just regression! Second, read this post regarding a recent ruling from the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals (that's the one that covers Connecticut) regarding the fact that LRE (Least Restrictive Environment) considerations MUST be applied to planning for ESY (Extended School Year) services. Many district summer programs are for special needs students only and don't always provide peer interactions. This case gives parents and advocates some legal support in negotiating for different kinds of summer programming that may include time with non-disabled peers. Read about it for yourself.
