Federal Laws in Special Education

U.S. National

54 min


Understanding federal laws for students with disabilities is essential for compliance.

This course covers key provisions of IDEA, ADA and Section 504. Beginning with a brief history of special education law, you’ll benefit from an engaging presentation of what the laws require, including detailed discussions of FAPE, LRE, Individualized Education Programs or IEPs, and Discipline. The process of special education is also mapped out from the Child Find through Transition. The course concludes with procedural safeguards, which are the requirements that afford parents and children protections and the right to dispute. This soup-to-nuts course is great for any special or general educator as well as those wanting to better understand federal law.
