A 17-year-old student and her mother alleged that the student’s school district violated the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) by failing to provide several requested services, including speech therapy, occupational therapy, a one-on-one aide, and a physical-therapy evaluation.  Further, the claimants alleged the district violated the IDEA when it did not assign grades for several math assignments. The complaint was ultimately dismissed after the Court determined there was insufficient evidence that the purported violations prevented the Individualized Education Plan from being reasonably calculated to enable the student to make progress appropriate in light of her circumstances.
