IDEA 2004 Web Tool.

Welcome to the State Council on Developmental Disabilities Area Board X Parent IDEA 2004 Guide.
This on-line training will help you learn more about the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004).

This training has six modules:

Important Information about Special Education (The Law)
This module provides basic information about the laws that guide special education.

Preparing for an IEP
This module provides information about the Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting, who will be there and how you can prepare for the meeting.

IEP Etiquette
This module provides tips and strategies to make IEP meetings friendlier and more productive.

This module provides information about assessments, assessment reports and what you can do if you don't agree with an assessment.

Strategies for Success
This module provides tips and ideas for working with your child, the teacher, the school and taking care of yourself.

Having a Problem?
This module provides information on your options if you are having a problem. It includes information on what to do and who can help you.

You can start with any of the modules. If you are new to special education and IDEA 2004, it will make the most sense to start with Important Information about Special Education. You can work at your own pace for as long as you would like. If you stop before completing a module (and you have your access code) you can return to the same section you were working on and your changes will be saved. Each module has a report available upon completion. After you have completed all six modules, you can print out a complete report from the blue bar that will appear on this page.
