IDEA providing Assistive Technology
« on: January 27, 2006, 11:52:43 AM »
According to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), assistive technology (devices & services) is to be provided at no cost to the parent. Are disabled students and parents receiving the appropriate services and devices? Are the states, public school systems, and other agencies providing these adequately? What is the standard for receiving assistive technology and does it need to be improved?
