Least Restrictive Environment

Part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Least Restrictive Environment (LRE), presumes that “students with disabilities will attend the same schools they would have attended if they did not have disabilities,” according to the NYS Education Dept. “Removal or restriction from their regular schools and classrooms can only occur for reasons related to the student’s disability when the student’s individualized education program (IEP) cannot be satisfactorily implemented in that setting, even with the use of supplementary aids and services.”

This webinar from Parent to Parent of NYS will walk you through the law, and what it means for you and your child.
