Student with Asperger's owed special services

From the CEC Smart Brief:

A U.S. district judge in Maine has ruled that a young girl with Asperger's syndrome who scores well on tests, behaves appropriately in class and completes her homework is eligible for special-education services. The lawyer for the family that had fought their district's initial decision to deny services says the court's ruling shows that social development, as well as academics, is an important aspect of education.
