Legislative Updates

The LDA Public Policy Committee is being proactive in preparing for the upcoming reauthorization. The Public Policy Committee developed the Platform for the Reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) March 28, 2012 reflecting the issues that have arisen from on-going discussions held during committee and LDA Board meetings over the past several years. The LDA Board has ratified this platform. Core Beliefs have been developed so that LDA will be prepared to engage actively in debates and discussions on the IDEA reauthorization.
