SB 1016 – Requires The State Board Of Education Include “Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder” In The Definition Of “Other Health Impairments” For Purpose Of Providing A Pupil Special Education And Related Services
The State Board of Education provides that a child who is assessed as having a specified health impairment or other health impairment is entitled to special education and related services. Those regulations define “other health impairment” as having limited strength, vitality, or alertness, including a heightened alertness to environmental stimuli that results in limited alertness with respect to the environment that is due to a chronic or acute health problem and adversely affects the child’s educational performance.
SB 1016 requires the State Board of Education includes “fetal alcohol spectrum disorder” in the definition of “other health impairments.”
(SB adds Article 2.4, commencing with Section 56332, to Chapter 4 of Part 30 of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Education Code.)
