The article presents a case study of a student who received supplementary services through an individual education program (IEP) for giftedness in two different school districts in elementary school and later was found eligible as a student with a learning disability due to difficulty with mathematical calculations and anxiety around school performance. Beginning in ninth grade he received no special provisions. His academic decline, the family's request for assistance, the development of an IEP for the student, and the attempts by the parents' to obtain for him a "free appropriate public education" (FAPE) as mandated by U.S. law are described, as are the District's obligatory accommodations to compensate for the student's prior denial of his rights to the special education program.
