Athletics, Extracurricular Activities and Students with Disabilities: District Obligations Under the IDEA and Section 504
by John W. Norlin, Esq.
This covers the requirements of IDEA under which extracurricular activities can be a component of FAPE that districts must provide for all eligible students. Additionally it covers Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act which guarantees that students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities and prohibits districts from excluding or denying benefits of such activities on the basis of disability.


Su Hijo con una Discapacidad Puede Participar en Actividades Extra-curriculares
Las escuelas hacen más que enseñar a los estudiantes a leer y hacer matemáticas. Los estudiantes también almuerzan juntos, hacen excursiones y se unen a clubes y equipos deportivos patrocinados por la escuela. Estas actividades "no académicas" o "extracurriculares" son importantes para todos los niños, incluyendo aquellos con discapacidades. Este folleto del Centro Nacional de Asistencia Técnica para Padres le informa cómo puede incluir a su hijo como otros estudiantes. (Spanish)

Your Child with a Disability Can Take Part in Extracurricular Activities
Schools do more than teach students to read and do math. Students also eat lunch together, go on field trips, and join school sponsored clubs and sports teams. These “nonacademic” or “extracurricular” activities are important for all children, including those with disabilities. This brochure from the National Parent Technical Assistance Center tells how you can get your child included like other students. (English)
