The Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (1991), born out of the Education of Handicapped Children’s Act (1975), guarantees the delivery of a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to all eligible children from birth until the twenty-second birthday. According to IDEA, a student is eligible for special education and related services when, and only when, it is determined that (a) a disability exists, (b) the disability has an adverse effect on the student’s educational performance, and (c) the need for special education and related services to address the adverse effect(s) is present and documented (IDEA, 1997).
