In a recent post, we discussed how The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) relates to dyslexia. Today we’re going continue that conversation by digging into The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and examine how it applies to dyslexia.
Did you know there are specific education laws related to dyslexia? With IEP Season coming into full swing, as a parent it’s important to have your ducks in a row before walking into the meeting. The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) is one of these laws and today we’ll delve deeper into the law and how it relates to dyslexia.
When I was a Special Education Case Manager, at the beginning of every school year, I would handout copies of IEP’s to all of my students’ teachers of record. I quickly learned that not only I, but my students’ teachers as well, needed a quick IEP reference sheet – a cheat-cheat if you will. A brief check of a student’s IEP Snapshot gave me a quick and easy answer and ensured the student received their accommodations. I finally had the time to create the IEP Snapshot I always wanted and am excited to share it with you!
