Important new federal regulations
The federal special education regulations were revised effective 12/31/08 to permit parents to revoke consent for the provision of special education and related services. Additionally, whether parents have the right to be “represented” (as opposed to accompanied and advised) by lay advocates at due process hearings is now left to the discretion of the states.
