Private Placement plus privately provided related service is appropriate

SRO 06-076

The SRO held that the private program offered at Sterling supplemented by speech-language therapy through an independent provider was appropriate to meet the student's needs in the LRE. The SRO has held on other occasions that a private placement was not appropriate for lack of a related service needed by the child despite that the parents were providing it privately.
