Family income appears to be a major factor influencing whether parents will seek mediation or due process in special education disputes with their child's school district. A nationwide survey of over 500 parents with children on the autism spectrum finds that families earning more than $100,000 a year are significantly more likely to pursue litigation compared to those with incomes that are half that level. The findings published recently in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders may point to fundamental inequities in the special education process, researchers said.
