The Individuals with Disablities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA) was enacted to ensure that all children with disabilities have available to them a free and appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services. It is further desiffned to meet their unique needs and prepare them for employment and independent living. To achieve this purpose, the Federal Givernment provides funds to states and local agencies to implement IDEIA, on the condition that such states and local agencies comply with its substantive and procedural requirements. 

What does this mean for you and your child? If your child has been idagnosed with a disability that impacts his/her ability to learn, then he or she may have a right to a "free and appropriate" public education as guarenteed b the IDEIA.
