Deaf Children with Disabilities: Rights under the IDEA
Raimondo, Barbara
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v11 n1 p10-14 Spr-Sum 2010
Parents of children who are deaf and who have disabilities often face barriers in ensuring that their children receive the services they need. Some of these barriers include lack of awareness about deafness-disability constellations, shortages of professionals knowledgeable about how deaf children learn or the impact of the disability on deaf children's learning, and lack of research-based recommendations on effective teaching methods. Regardless of the presence of barriers, each state's education system is required to serve those children appropriately. Deaf children with additional disabilities constitute a large minority of deaf children. This article provides information on how the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part B applies to this category of children. Part B covers children ages 3 through 21. Part C is the section of the law that applies to children under age 3.
