what is the individuals with disabilities education act (idea)

The Americans with Disabilities Act protects individuals with disabilities and ensures they have the same opportunities as rights as those who do not have disabilities. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, discrimination against people with disabilities is prohibited. Many different entities must adhere to the
provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, including local, state, and federal government services, public accommodations, and others. Provisions in the Americans with Disabilities Act require educational institutions to provide accommodations for students with disabilities.

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that educational institutions make educational opportunities, extracurricular activities, and facilities open and accessible to all students. Both public and private schools must adhere to these provisions in the Americans with Disabilities Act. Reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act include the following:

  • Special education
  • Specialized computer equipment
  • Reading assistance
  • Interpreters
  • Additional time between individual classes
  • Class schedule changes
  • Permitting students to videotape or record classes, lectures, and presentations
  • Testing accommodations
