8th Circuit finds that student with adhd, bipolar disorder and conduct disorder is eligible under IDEA
Hansen v. Republic R-III Sch. Dist. (8th Cir., Jan. 21, 2011): This is one of the latest in the rather familiar category of cases addressing whether a child who engages in unacceptable conduct should be classified and provided with special education services. Here, the hearing officer said no, the district court said yes and the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with the District Court. For more details, see this article on the NSBA blog.
