The Supreme Court in Endrew F. v. Douglas Cty. Sch. Dist. RE-1, 137 S. Ct. 988 (2017) made clear that the IEPs of children with disabilities must be “appropriately ambitious” to enable them to make progress in the general education curriculum in light of their unique abilities.    The Court explained that children with disabilities are to be challenged to reach their potential progress just as their non-disabled peers are.  For most students, this progress happens most effectively when children with disabilities are given access to the general education curriculum and included in the general education classrooms with their peers without disabilities. IEPs that are just deemed to be “more appropriate” without regard to the children’s least restrictive environment do not provide children with the ability to meet their true potential, nor do they satisfy the Congressional mandate under IDEA. How does this happen at the IEP table? What are the questions to ask when measuring progress? A parent attorney will give examples and real-life application to these questions.
