The School Says My Request Is Too Expensive
The Solution: If your child needs an accommodation or service in order to make educational progress, the school must provide it. But remember, there is a legal difference between an educational benefit and an educational necessity. If it is necessary, cost cannot be a reason for denying your request. That doesn't mean that the school can't consider the cost of your request in certain circumstances. For example, if your child requires assistive technology, you can't force the school to purchase the most expensive model if a less expensive brand will meet your child's needs.
