Ok, I need help interpreting this. My difficult child currently qualifies under "other health impairment" for ADHD. He was just diagnosis'd with Cognitive Disorder not otherwise specified - which I believe would be a "specific learning disability" - right? But these things do not automatically qualify him for Special Education if he "only needs a related service and not special education". How is that determined? I am preparing for his re-evaluation in which I believe they might try saying he no longer qualifies. Sec. 300.8 Child with a disability. (a) General. (1) Child with a disability means a child evaluated in accordance with Sec. Sec. 300.304 through 300.311 as having mental retardation, a hearing impairment (including deafness), a speech or language impairment, a visual impairment (including blindness), a serious emotional disturbance (referred to in this part as "emotional disturbance"), an orthopedic impairment, autism, traumatic brain injury, an other health impairment, a specific learning disability, deaf-blindness, or multiple disabilities, and who, by reason thereof, needs special education and related services. (2) (i) Subject to paragraph (a)(2)(ii) of this section, if it is determined, through an appropriate evaluation under Sec. Sec. 300.304 through 300.311, that a child has one of the disabilities identified in paragraph (a)(1) of this section, but only needs a related service and not special education, the child is not a child with a disability under this part. (ii) If, consistent with Sec. 300.39(a)(2), the related service required by the child is considered special education rather than a related service under State standards, the child would be determined to be a child with a disability under paragraph (a)(1) of this section.
