The law was reauthorized by Congress in 2004, prompting a series of changes in the way special education services are implemented. These changes are continuing today and they affect the delivery of special education and related services in your state. This law originated as a way to insure that students with disabilities receive an appropriate public education. IDEA has been updated about every five years since its beginnings, the latest of which is the 2004 reauthorization.

The reason for this consistent updating is to give us a chance to see how the law plays out in practice, and what we need to do to make it more clear, efficient or effective. In 1986, for example, the infant and toddler component was added, and in 1990, transition planning became a requirement. These concepts have been built into the special education system to insure equal access to education for all students. In 2006, another change was made when final regulations were released for IDEA 2004. For years, schools were required to wait until a child fell considerably behind grade level before being eligible for special education services. Today, with the release of the final regulations of IDEA 2004, school districts are no longer required to follow this ‘discrepancy model,’ but are allowed to find other ways to determine when a child needs extra help.

Note: The phrase “further education” is new in 2004, as is the increased emphasis on effective transition services to promote successful post-school employment or education. Components IDEA is divided into four sections, Parts A – D. Part A defines the terms used in the law. The term “specific learning disability” means a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, which disorder may manifest itself in the imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or do mathematical calculations. Such term includes such conditions as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia. Such term does not include a learning problem that is primarily the result of visual, hearing, or motor disabilities, of mental retardation, of emotional disturbance, or of environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantage.
