IDEA Training for Professionals

Presented by: Sharon Ringwalt

Federal law (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act: IDEA) guarantees many rights and services to families of children with hearing loss. Many professionals involved with EHDI programs do not understand how the resources and provisions of IDEA can be used to strengthen EHDI programs. This session will focus on helping professionals understand the provisions of the law and how they can work with other IDEA service providers to effectively and cooperatively provide the best possible services for infants and young children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
