Intervention in School and Clinic, v42 n3 p131-136 Jan 2007
The new amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act became effective in July 2005 and contained a number of important changes to the current law. Some of the major changes regarding highly qualified teachers, alignment with the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, eligibility, the Individualized Education Program process, and procedural safeguards will be discussed, because those areas have an immediate impact on school personnel as well as on eligible children and their families.
