Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Training for Parents

Presented by: Lisa Kovacs

Federal law (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act: IDEA) guarantees many rights and services to families of children with hearing loss. Unfortunately, many families are not aware of these provisions or how to effectively use the law to obtain the services they need. This session will focus on helping families and others understand the provisions of the law and how to work together effectively and cooperatively to obtain the best possible services for infants and young children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
