This paper describes highlights of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that have a high impact on the delivery of special education services. IDEA's eight parts are outlined, and then two parts are discussed in more detail: (1) Part B, which authorizes federal grants to states to help underwrite the costs of educating children with disabilities and sets out the conditions states must meet to qualify for these grants; and (2) Part H, which provides grants to states for children from birth to 2 years of age who have developmental delays, have conditions that typically result in delay, or are at risk of substantial developmental delay. Components of an Individualized Education Program, an Individualized Family Services Plan, and a Transition Services Plan are listed. Nine print or organizational resources are also listed. (JDD)
