About this video

Presented by Amy Rhone and Teresa Coonts  Nebraska Department of Education

The purpose of this session is to discuss problems with decision to shorten the school day of students with ASD or other disbilities.  These decisions are often made by IEP teams or at the request of a parent and may cause concern regarding students receiving a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). This practice has increased for children with ASD because of behavior challenges, transportation issues, lack of staff, and scheduling of outside therapies. This presentation will present guidance and evidence based practices that can assist teams in keeping all children in school the full day.
