If you have a child with a disability, your child is entitled to FAPE - a free appropriate public education, under the IDEA.
If you are new to special education and IDEA, you need to know what this means.
Not new to the sped maze? You need to stay current on caselaw.
IDEA (and FAPE) will continue to evolve and be re-defined by caselaw.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn about the legal concept of FAPE and who is responsible for providing a free, appropriate public education. Learn how the courts have interpreted the meaning of "appropriate" education and the caselaw that supports this concept.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
