To Improve IDEA, Parents Draw from Experience.

IEP, LRE, FAPE. These acronyms are part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), landmark federal legislation that ensures children with disabilities in the US have equal opportunity to receive a free and appropriate public education. IDEA gives parents a central role in advocating for their child’s access to the services and supports they need from preschool through graduation. While parents are at the heart of the process, in the last reauthorization of IDEA, less than 4 percent of the comments collected from the public came from individual parents.
