Jake is an 11 year old child with a history of severe anxiety. Over a period of time, his behavior at school became increasingly erratic and hard to control. School officials removed him from school and advised his mother that he would have to receive his educational services at home. LSNV investigated the matter and ascertained that the school division's action in removing Jake from school violated his rights under federal and state disability laws. In addition, Jake had been subjected to illegal restraint and seclusion at school, which was a factor in the escalation of behavior issues. Following LSNV's demand for immediate reinstatement to a safe and appropriate public school, the school division re-admitted Jake to school, and he is now performing well at a regular middle school.
