NASP has joined their coalition partners in the National Alliance of
Pupil Services Organizations (NAPSO) by endorsing their written comments

In submitting comments on the proposed regulations for IDEA, NASP's
coalition partners in the National Alliance of Pupil Service Organizations
(NAPSO) emphasized the need for the Department to clarify the rules
detailing when an IEP related service provider could be excluded from
an IEP meeting. NAPSO partners, concerned that this provision in the
regulations might be abused by some school districts or families, focused
special attention on this matter by submitting a separate letter to OSERS
requesting assistance in this area. To
