Check Her For Fleas (er...Idea Remedies) Tour

OK so I'm having some fun here, but I'm very excited that I will be giving presentations next month on the two major remedies that a hearing officer may award after an IDEA due process hearing. On July 8th, I'll be presenting on Compensatory Education at the Seattle University School of Law's Eighth Academy for IDEA Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers in Seattle, Washington. On July 22nd, I'll be speaking on the Remedy of Reimbursement for Unilateral Placements at the 16th Annual Education Law Conference in Portland, Maine, sponsored by the University of Southern Maine and the University of Maine School of Law. In addition to the links below, I have added registration links on the left-hand side of the blog.

You can learn more about the Seattle Academy through this link. You may register for the conference here. It is designed primarily for due process hearing officers or those who administer IDEA dispute resolution systems.

You can learn more about the Portland, Maine Education Law Conference through this link. You can register for the conference here. This is a more general education law conference.

Both conferences are excellent. As many of you know, I love the networking opportunities that these types of conferences provide. I have made many friends at similar conferences, and they help me with my work all the time. Thanks guys. If you are planning on attending either conference, please let me know. I always enjoy meeting and talking with the many thoughtful and committed readers of this blog.

I just finished a very intensive two day training for five very experienced IDEA hearing officers. As always, I learned a lot from my colleagues. The job of the hearing officer is a tough one, and I love that I get to do these trainings. Thanks to all who were involved. It was great.


  1. PS:

    I meant "ticks" not "fleas." I'll try to be more true to the lyrics in the future.
