J. C. THROUGH HER PARENTS v. NEW FAIRFIELD BD. OF ED. (Conn. 3-31-2011): Parents sought recognition of their daughter’s myoelectric prosthetic arm as an assistive technology device necessary to secure a free appropriate public education ("FAPE") within the meaning of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The IHO and Court found otherwise, holding instead that it was a medical device and alternatively, that it was not necessary for the child to receive a FAPE.
