(2014) | Available in English and Spanish | Useful to parents of children with developmental disabilities.
This 3-hour self-directed course was created to help parents of children with developmental disabilities understand and maximize the special education system. The course focuses on:
- a child’s right to a free appropriate public education (FAPE),
- the laws that protect those rights, and
- practical ways that parents can ensure that their children benefit from an inclusive education.
The course reviews IDEA 2004 and includes current thinking on educational reform and the importance of teaching children to use digital technology to improve educational outcomes and better prepare children to work in the future.
