Legal Aspects of Teaching Music Students with Disabilities
Crockett, Jean B.
Music Educators Journal, v104 n2 p45-50 Dec 2017
The public education of students with disabilities in the United States is governed by federal policies that promote school improvement, protect students from discrimination, and provide those who need it with special education and related services to meet their individual needs. This article explains the legal aspects of teaching students with disabilities in the context of music education. Topics address promoting student achievement through the Every Student Succeeds Act, protecting individual access to the music curriculum under Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, and providing music instruction to special education students under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Guidelines are provided for making music instruction for students with disabilities both legally correct and educationally meaningful.
