Special Education

Special education is a set of services -- including specially designed instruction, related services, supplemental aids and supports, and transition services -- that children with disabilities have a right to receive to meet their individualized needs.

The delivery of special education services is governed by the federal law called IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). If your child has a disability, s/he may have many rights under the IDEA.

S/He may also be entitled to accommodations or services under another disability law known as Section 504
