"Looking Good" Since 1975...

According to the US government website about IDEA , disability is "a natural part of the human experience and in no way diminishes the right of individuals to participate in or contribute to society". Our nation is committed to ensuring that children with disabilities have access to Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) so they have the same opportunities as those without.

IDEA, or as it is now known, IDEIA, Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act, is the federal law that protects the education of children with disabilities. There are also state laws that offer protection and "equal" opportunities, and those vary by state. IDEIA is designed to guide the decisions made at the state level.
