The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is the main federal program authorizing state and local aid for special education and related services for children with disabilities, including students with learning disabilities (LD). IDEA also protects parents’ right to request a comprehensive evaluation by a school or school district when a student is suspected of having a Specific Learning Disability (SLD).
Join experts Mary Beth Klotz, Ph.D., NCSP and Daryl Mellard, Ph.D. as they answer questions from parents and teachers about legislative requirements and best practices on how RTI can ensure accurate and timely LD identification.
