The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act: State Achievements, Challenges, and Implications. FPG Snapshot #65
FPG Child Development Institute
The goal of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is no longer simply to make services available to young children with disabilities and their families, but also to ensure that those services lead to enhanced outcomes for participating children and families. To that end, IDEA 2004 requires states to submit State Performance Plans (SPPs) and Annual Performance Reports (APRs) to document progress on performance and compliance indicators, improvement activities, and monitoring strategies. From FFY 2005-2008, the mean percentage of children birth to age 1 receiving EI services remained stable at 1.15%; the percentage of children birth to age 3 receiving EI services increased from 2.4% to 2.66%, despite the narrowing of eligibility criteria in some states. Eighteen states met their target for serving birth to 1 year olds in FFY 2008 and 31 states met their target for serving birth to 3-year-olds.
