Whether you want to better understand the rights of special needs students to assist schools in compliance or to represent students during a lawsuit, this course will strengthen your knowledge. Special Education is specially designed instruction that addresses the unique needs that result from a child with a disability. Nationally, approximately seven million students are classified with a disability and receive special-education services. According to the U.S. Department of Education, 71,000 of those students are educated in private schools at public expense. The purpose of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) is to provide all students with disabilities a free appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least-restrictive environment (LRE). This lecture will review laws that regulate IDEA, compliance issues, petitioning for children with special needs and the various financial and tax ramifications of IDEA and FAPE.
