Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 7
Citation: 111 Cal.App.4th 1392

The trial court was required to determine whether or not the minor had special educational needs before finding her a ward of the court under Welfare and Institutions Code section 602. The record showed she suffered from bipolar disorder, and possibly from ADHD, and a doctor recommended she be evaluated for special educational needs, thus putting the trial court on notice the minor might have special needs.
