Children with disabilities are among the most vulnerable members of society, and their success in life is heavily influenced by the “free and appropriate education” to which they are entitled.  The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act provides children with disabilities access to the general education curriculum in a general education classroom (to the maximum extent appropriate) in order to improve educational outcomes. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act are federal laws that protects qualified individuals from discrimination based on their disability, and there are state law counterparts that also provide protection from discrimination.
