Understanding Key Laws that Govern the Provision of AT Devices and Services in Birth-3 and K-12 Settings

Presenter(s): Angela Standridge and Shannon Paige, Texas Technology Access Program
Purpose: This webinar will provide an overview of federal laws that protect students with disabilities in educational settings: Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ’04 (IDEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), and the 21st Century Assistive Technology Act. AT Programs may also have to identify state education laws, administrative codes, policies and procedures, and guidance when supporting AT in education. Collaborating with State Education Agencies (SEAs) and local education agencies (LEAs) in implementing these state and federal laws with fidelity is within the scope of practice for AT Programs. This will support student success and long-term outcomes, as well as meet LEA and state obligations.
