IDEA: Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
IDEA is a federal law designed to protect students with disabilities by providing funding to ensure those students receive a free appropriate public education (FAPE). The intention is to make sure every child with disabilities receives an education that prepares them for advanced levels of education, employment, and independent living. IDEA funds are used to provide early intervention, special education, and related services, including assistive technology.
