The student is a xx year-old resident of the school district. In third grade he was identified as in need of Section 504 services due to a fine motor skill deficit. Later issues of attention, organization and written expression were included in Section 504 Accommodation Plans. Evaluations conducted by the school district in 2001 and 2004 found the student not eligible under IDEA. The evaluations of 2004 relied heavily on Independent Educational Evaluations (IEE) conducted by Dr. L the parents’ selected Pediatric Neuropsychologist/School Psychologist. In September 2005 the parents requested an Individualized Education Program (IEP). The school district, at parents’ request, paid Dr. L for an evaluation. An Evaluation Report (ER), prepared in May 2006, found the student to be an eligible student under IDEIA.
The parents claim there are child find issues, a denial of FAPE, denial of Extended School Year (ESY) for 2005 and 2006, inappropriate ESY for 2007, reimbursement for therapies and a laptop computer, an IEE at school district expense and an appropriate IEP.
