S. Lessard, a mutliply-handicapped student, attended Crotched Mountain Rehab Center in NH.  Parents advocated for her to move to a less restrictive environment, leaving Crotched Mountain and receiving home and community-based supports.  The appellate court found that Crotched Mountain provided FAPE and refused the parents' request for transition services and a school program in the community.  Court upheld that the Rowley standard is applicable to transition services.
