Special Education Laws

Disabled students have certain rights when it comes to their education. The federal government ensures the rights of disabled students and their families’ protection through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The act essentially governs how states and agencies may provide early intervention, special education, and related services to children with disabilities.
