A learning or physical disability can be difficult for parents, close family and the child himself, if there is no knowledge of laws and local institutions designed to help the child accomplish his or her goals in formal education. Use this brief, graphic review of what the IDEA (The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) does for students’ educational rights, concerning those with learning and physical disabilities.

IDEA provides education services to all students who qualify for special education.

The main objective of this is to adapt the learning system to students’ needs. Learn more by clicking on the graphic.
