Information about the Least Restrictive Environment

Bonnie Yates joins the Autism Live program to discuss the legal requirement that children with disabilities receive their education in the “Least Restrictive Environment” (LRE). This requirement is in place to ensure that schools will not remove students with disabilities from fully-inclusive education, unless, even with adequate support staff, they cannot participate satisfactorily.

Yates explains how the Least Restrictive Environment requirement can be utilized to ensure your child has access to the best level of inclusion for them. For example, if at your child’s IEP meeting the school insists on removing your child from general education classes, you as a parent are entitled to information about what kind of supports your child has been receiving and why those supports were not able to ensure their satisfactory participation in the class.
