Laws Relating to Students with Disabilities
There are three laws that protect students with disabilities. These laws ensure that no restrictions be placed on their right to secure the benefits of a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). The three laws are:
A student eligible for special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (or the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement act as of July 1, 2005) is automatically protected under Section 504 and Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The IDEA (or IDEIA) ensures that children with disabilities who qualify for special education services are provided a Free Appropriate Public Education with specially designed instruction and related services designed to meet the unique educational needs of the student.
