HOW OSERS WILL CELEBRATE 45TH ANNIVERSARY OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITY EDUCATION ACT ON NOVEMBER 29, 2020! (153 hits)



For Immediate Release From OSERS!

Celebrate the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act's 45th Anniversary!!


Nov. 29, 2020, marks the 45th anniversary of President Gerald Ford signing the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (Public Law 94-142), now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

In adopting this landmark civil rights measure, Congress noted that the law would accomplish two important goals:

It would guarantee a free appropriate public education to every child, regardless of disability, on an equal basis with all other children; and

It would advance all Americans’ understanding of disability by bringing children with disability out of the shadows and into American schools where their gifts and strengths could be recognized.

While tremendous progress has been made over the years, we must continue the hard work to address the challenges that still exist. Although we are able to help many children with disabilities to achieve their goals, we must continue our work to ensure that all children have the supports they need and to find ways for all children with disabilities to achieve meaningful results and outcomes. Even if we still have work to do to fully realize IDEA’s promise in the future, there is much to celebrate.

Join the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) and the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) the week of Nov. 30, 2020, as the Department of Education celebrates 45 years of providing education, supports and services to infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities and their families through the IDEA.

Please visit the IDEA 45 anniversary page https://sites.ed.gov/idea/idea-45-years-later/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=, the hub for all OSERS content related to the 45th anniversary of the IDEA. On this page, you will find downloadable IDEA 45 graphics to use with your own celebrations. OSERS will also post new resources and stories each day of the week of Nov. 30, so make sure to check back on this page.

Additionally, follow OSERS on Twitter https://twitter.com/ed_sped_rehab?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= to celebrate 45 years of IDEA as we post new videos and blogs. You will also have the chance to test your IDEA knowledge and engage in some IDEA trivia.
