students with disabilities

Parent to Parent NYS is offering a virtual training on Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It’s designed to provide parents with an understanding of the law, how it applies to educational programs and to students with disabilities.

FYI, Section 504 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability in any program or activity operated by recipients of federal funds. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), on the other hand, is the federal law that makes available a free appropriate public education to eligible children with disabilities throughout the nation and ensures special education and related services to those children. Section 504 does require development of a school plan, although this written document is not mandated. The Individualized Education Program (IEP) of IDEA may be used for the Section 504 written plan.

Tina Beauparlant, regional manager, Education Specialist, Parent to Parent of NYS, will present the webinar.
