Lay Advocacy: Overview of IDEA

April 07, 2021 9:00 am until 12:00 pm
Categories: Webinar


Children who have disabilities are entitled to appropriate, individualized, educational services that meet their unique learning needs. Join us to learn about the history and provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), two federal laws that govern education for students with disabilities. We will discuss your children’s rights, how children qualify for special education services, and how these services may be delivered.
