This website was created to provide a "one-stop shop" for resources related to IDEA 2004 and implementing its regulations. It is a "living" website and will change and grow as resources and information become available. When fully implemented, the site will provide searchable versions of IDEA 2004 and the regulations, access to cross-referenced content from other laws (e.g., the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), etc.), video clips on selected topics, topic briefs on selected regulations, links to OSEP's Technical Assistance and Dissemination (TA&D) Network and a Q&A Corner where you can submit questions, and a variety of other information sources.
Guidance for Implementing IDEA 2004 Tools and resources developed to assist in the transition from IDEA 97 to IDEA 2004. Topics addressed include Evaluation, IEP Development and Team Meeting, Discipline, Highly Qualified, and Instructional Support Services and Specific Learning Disability Determination.
