How Students with Disabilities Are Protected from Discriminatory Discipline

Published: Aug. 29, 2022Updated: Sep. 15, 2023

Recently, new guidance on behavior-related school discipline was issued by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services. Part of the guidance includes recommendations for individualized supports and counseling.

We sat down with special education advocate and owner of KnowIEPs Dr. Sarah Pelangka (Ph D, BCBA-D) to find out what the new guidance means for our kids. Watch the full video above. You can also read our article, How Are Students with Disabilities Protected from Discriminatory Discipline? for more tips, links, and clips.
