By FindLaw Staff on October 12, 2009 1:23 PM

In an action for tuition reimbursement under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA), summary judgment for defendant department of education is affirmed where: 1) because the IDEA does not require that an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) name a specific school placement, plaintiff-child's IEP was not procedurally deficient; and 2) there was substantial evidence in the record that the IEP provided significant benefits to plaintiff in addressing his problematic behaviors.
