The hearing, a Manifestation Determination Review (MDR), is a process to examine all relevant information and specifically the relationship between the child’s disability and the behavior. Consequences for problem behaviors should not discriminate against a child based on a disability.  The MDR is conducted when the exclusion of a child for disciplinary purposes would constitute a change in placement.  The team considers the origins of the behavior as it relates to the child’s disability.  If it appears that the disability has a causal relationship to the behavior, then the child should not be excluded.
