New Resource on IDEA for Parents

Posted Jan 21 2010 12:00am
The Let Them Hear Foundation has launched a resource center for parents and professionals working with children with disabilities to provide a fundamental understanding of the key concepts of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 2004 (IDEA 2004).  

While the information will be useful for parents and professionals dealing with a child with any of the thirteen disability categories defined by IDEA 2004, the primary focus is to provide information to parents and professionals on issues related to the specific category of hearing impairment (including deafness). 

The Let Them Hear Foundation was formerly the group that battled the insurance companies to cover Cochlear Implants.  Now taking on the issue of appropriate therapy and treatment for kids with hearing loss is a very logical extension of their great work.
