Overview

Homebound instruction represents the most restrictive educational placement on the continuum of alternative placements for students with disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). However, homebound instructional services can be a very appropriate least restrictive environment for some students with disabilities because it guarantees educational services to those students who would otherwise be unable to attend school programs and services. In the current absence of federal statutory and regulatory guidelines, the purpose of this study was to determine whether explicit and implicit guidelines existed elsewhere in the law. Therefore, state and federal court decisions, state administrative due process hearing decisions, and federal agency administrative interpretations, were identified and reviewed in an effort to determine other sources of legal guidelines, for the appropriate use of homebound instructional placements for students with disabilities under the IDEA. Standard legal research methodology was used in the study. The electronic and hard-copy versions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Law Reporter (IDELR), the West Reporter System, and LexisNexis Academic were used as sources for identifying the state and federal court decisions state administrative due process hearing decisions, and federal agency administrative interpretations. The study determined that several explicit and implicit guidelines exist for the appropriate use of homebound instruction for students with disabilities. Homebound instructional services are most often appropriate for students with chronic illness, health impairments, and medical disabilities whose condition is severe enough to prevent their attendance at school. Homebound instructional services are most often inappropriate for students with behavior disorders and for other students with disabilities facing disciplinary sanctions due to the inability to meet IEP goals in behavioral and social domains, the inability to receive behavioral intervention services designed to address the maladaptive behavior, the lack of social interaction with school-aged peers, and the lack of opportunity to practice and generalize newly learned skills in a variety of different environments. Recommendations and guidelines for the appropriate use of homebound instruction were provided for educational leaders and IEP placement teams to assist in the proper implementation of this most restrictive placement.
