 Theme A: Welcome to IDEA | ¡Bienvenido a IDEA!

Take a broad look at IDEA 2004 with these 2 modules–the first welcomes newcomers to IDEA and the second identifies what’s different in the 2004 reauthorization of the law.

Theme B: IDEA and General Education | IDEA y la Educación General


See how IDEA aligns with No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and explore topics on general education and children with disabilities.

Theme C: Evaluating Children for Disability  | Las Evaluaciones Bajo IDEA

When children are struggling in school, the possibility exists that they may have a disability. The 3 modules in Theme C look at the evaluation process under IDEA, which is intended to determine if, indeed, there is a disability affecting a child’s school progress and, if so, whether the child needs special education and related services.

Theme D: Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) | Los Programas Educativos Individualizados

The IEP is the cornerstone in the education of every child with a disability. Learn about everything IEP and more!

Theme E: Procedural Safeguards | Las Garantías Procesales

Prior written notice, informed written consent, access to records, just a few of the critical safeguards in IDEA for families and schools.
