Disability categories according to IDEA

Introduction:

In 1975, the US Congress passed the Education for All Children with Disabilities Act (EHA) to support states and localities in protecting the rights of infants and young children and meeting individual needs.

The name of this landmark law was changed to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in 1990.

Before the Education for All Children with Disabilities Act (EHA), many children did not have access to education and learning opportunities.

In 1970, American schools educated only one in five children with disabilities.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires public schools to provide special education services to qualified students.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act(IDEA) covers thirteen disability categories.
