What is a "child with a disability"?

In Mr. I v. Maine School Administrative District No. 55, the district challenged the child's entitlement to any special education services. claiming that a child is entitled to such services "only if the sutdent's condition imposes a significant negative impact on the child's educational performance . . . limited to those areas of performance actually being measured and assessed by the local unit, in accordance with law." The First Circuit declined to accept this standard.

The decision can be found here.
