Help your child succeed in school. The federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), was put in place to make sure that every child with a diagnosed disability gets the help he or she needs throughout their education process. Parents have significant rights as advocates for their child, both before any evaluation is done as well as afterward if the child is determined to have special needs. Find out what an Individual Educational Program or Plan (IEP) is. Understand these rights and learn how to assure your child is receiving the accommodation she or he needs. Parental advocacy is essential for school success.
