In the wake of the landmark case, Endrew F. v. Douglas County Sch. Dist. RE-1, 69 IDELR 174 (U.S. 2017), special educators and other school personnel must understand their duties when it comes to behavior management strategies for students with disabilities. Not recognizing a student’s need for behavioral intervention or not taking steps to manage his or her behavior can prove to be a costly misstep for districts.

To answer this need for guidance on the everchanging legal landscape surrounding behavior management for students with disabilities, LRP Media Group, a recognized leader in the special education publishing industry, has published an update of FBAs and BIPs: Meeting IDEA Compliance Obligations.

Administrators can use this pamphlet to make sure their special educators understand the legal issues districts now face when conducting functional behavioral assessments and developing behavioral intervention plans for students with disabilities. This updated pamphlet addresses new topics, including:

  • The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Endrew F. and its impact upon how districts approach conducting FBAs and creating BIPs.
  • Recent court decisions from across the country analyzing the appropriateness of FBAs and BIPs.
  • New OSEP guidance on FBAs and BIPs

In addition, the update to FBAs and BIPs: Meeting IDEA Compliance Obligations provides all new resources including tips for conducting FBAs and creating BIPs, as well as examples of each.

This resource is a must-have for the busy administrator looking for guidance on how to best comply with the special education law surrounding behavior management for students with disabilities.
