Asserting that school buildings under renovation and even newly built schools may have polluted indoor environments that cause health problems and hinder learning, this guide introduces special education and anti-discrimination laws designed to remove barriers to education for children with disabilities such as chronic health impairments. The guide addresses the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, effective communication and advocacy, some signs and symptoms of indoor air pollution, and how to address a problem. The guide also includes organizational and published resources. (EV)
