Historical Perspective and Landmark Cases

Creating a more unbiased assessment process has culminated in several key court cases regarding the requirements for the assessment and evaluation process in special education. Because of those decisions, today, in order for a student to qualify for special education services, educational professionals must follow a comprehensive process that evaluates the whole child and uses a multidisciplinary approach. This includes assessment of all areas related to the suspected disability (Pierangelo & Guiliani, 2012). As a special educator, it is important for you to be familiar with the historical context of processes used in the assessment and evaluation of students with mild to moderate disabilities.
Using support from the required readings, the Instructor Guidance, and supplemental information derived from the discussions write a 3 page paper analyzing three key cases and the effect they have had on the field. These cases are Hobson v. Hansen(Links to an external site.); Dina v. State Board of Education(Links to an external site.); and Larry P v. Wilson Riles(Links to an external site.).
