Guide (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act)
- Individuals with
Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Guide - The National Center for
Learning Disabilities has just launched an innovative, online guide to the
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which is designed to
explain the federal laws that underpin special education in every state.
Although created primarily for parents, the guide is also a valuable source
of information -- in accessible language -- for classroom teachers who may
not have a background in special education. Teachers can use the guide as a
referral for parents or use it themselves to better understand the rights
and requirements of their students who have special needs.
