Matt Hefflefinger, Tyler Pratt, and the Executive Director of the IHSA (Illinois High School Association), Craig Anderson, gave a presentation entitled “Disability Litigation” at the April 20 Legal Meeting of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). The presentation fostered a discussion on recent court decisions and rule guidelines from around the country relating to the inclusion of student athletes with disabilities in high school athletics.

The NFHS serves as a federation of the high school athletic associations from 50 states (and the District of Columbia). The NFHS publishes playing rules in 16 sports and administers fine arts programs and other initiatives that reach 18,500 high schools.
