Final Regulations Published To Implement IDEA!

The U.S. Department of Education today published in the Federal Register final regulations to implement the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Amendments of 1997. Children with ADHD are covered under the “Other Health Impaired” category and are eligible for mandated special education services and accomodations if they need them. These are very important developments which protect the rights of children with ADHD under federal disability law.
