Case Study:Student With Special Needs

Complete and essay formed report using APA style writing.

Debbie Young is a seasoned high school principal. She served as a special education teacher and as an assistant principal in a progressive, affluent school district in the South. She is approached by the parents of a severely disabled tenth-grade student. Jonathan, requesting that a full-time nurse be provided under the label of “related services.” Jonathan has multiple disabilities requiring constant care by a specially trained nurse. He is profoundly intellectually disabled, has spastic quadriplegia, and has a seizure disorder. Young refuses the parents request due to extraordinary expense and a view that the school is not the most appropriate placement for Jonathan.
