Civil Rights – Schools & School Boards – FAPE – Autistic Student – Home Program (access required)

Sumter County School Dist. 17 v. Heffernan A school district failed to provide an autistic student with a free and appropriate public education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, because it did not comply with his Individual Education Plan's direction that he receive at least 15 hours per week of applied behavioral analysis therapy; the 4th Circuit upholds the decision in favor of the student's parents, who withdrew him from public school in order to educate him at home.
