Students with disabilities are suspended or expelled from school at disproportionate rates compared to their non-disabled peers, and are at a higher risk for involvement in the juvenile justice system. Failure by schools to identify and accommodate students with disabilities is often a strong risk factor for such involvement. This panel of experts provides a brief overview of the IDEA’s requirements regarding the discipline of students with disabilities, and offers strategies for ensuring that their disabilities are adequately addressed by the school system.
