Brush Up on the Special Education Basics

Understanding the special education process is important for families of children with disabilities to make sure schools are complying with the regulations set forth in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

School districts are required to provide special education and related services to eligible children with disabilities. Special education is a set of services that children with disabilities receive to support their success at school. The services each student receives are based on their unique needs—and parents are allowed to give consent for the school to provide some services but not others.

Are you familiar with the process and what rights you have by law?
