This session reviews and analyzes the changing legal nature of dyslexia and public education from the 1930s to the present. It includes an analysis of recent cases from the U.S. Courts of Appeal and the two U.S. Supreme Court cases issued in 2017. By understanding this evolution of case law and legislative changes, participants become aware of future areas of probable legal conflict. Armed with that knowledge, participants leave the presentation better able to predict or avoid potential litigation, all the while understanding the expected outcome, in advance.
ADVOCACY AND LEGISLATION: Understand the laws and interpretations under various legislative motions and learn ways to implement advocacy efforts locally or at the state level.
