Six Principles Of IDEA

According to the Central Florida Parent Center (2009), the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA), is grounded in six major principles:

  1. Zero Reject,
  2. Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE),
  3. Nondiscriminatory Identification and Evaluation,
  4. Least Restrictive Environment,
  5. Procedural Safeguards, and
  6. Parent Participation.

This federal law provides guidance and a framework for special education services for students who meet the specified eligibility criteria for one or more disabilities.
