IDEA National Survey Examines Rights of Students and Parents

This survey examines whether parents of children with disabilities are treated as equal partners in their children’s education, and whether the rights of students with disabilities and their parents are protected. The IDEA National Survey also contains questions about inclusion and assessment issues. 

All members of the community are welcome: parents; attorneys, advocates, other professionals; and self-advocates, including former students. The survey is open to all disabilities. Take the survey and read more about it at The survey will be open through June 14, 2011. Results will be compiled into a report about experiences under the IDEA to be published this summer.
