Which child should be in the classroom and has more of a right to FAPE?
So, you have a student that has a Specific Learning Disability and a student that has turrettes, but also has a Emotional disability. Both students are in the same classroom and needs to be in the class to receive instruction. The student with turrettes blurts out a vocal phrase with some words that are distracting to the student with a Specific Learning Disability and distracts them from learning the material. Now the student with turrettes if they leave the room misses the material as well. So, if the student with turrettes has a right to an education in the classroom, but is distracting the student with a Specific Learning Disability, who should be in the classroom?
