As part of its celebrations of the 40th Anniversary of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) at the U.S. Department of Education has launched a new website entitled:

IDEAs that Work:
Preparing Children and Youth with Disabilities for Success

As school systems work to implement rigorous academic standards and prepare diverse learners for success beyond graduation, we are proud to announce this additional support for teachers and families of students with disabilities and struggling learners. The IDEAs that Work website is designed to connect teachers and families with resources to assist them in supporting the academic, social, emotional and behavioral needs of students as they become college and career ready.
