The issues in a recent public hearing involved whether or not a sixteen-year-old profoundly deaf boy was receiving an "appropriate educational program" and whether his placement was actually in the "least restrictive environment." The IEP written for him in September, 1977, was challenged by his parents from the time of their first conference with school personnel to the last conference held in the spring of 1978. The document was not accepted by the parents and the controversy led to due process under PL 94-142 in which the speech clinician gave testimony. The clinician's role in the hearing is discussed and recommendations are presented for others who may become involved in such cases.
