I was surprised to find how difficult it was to get my hands on a copy of the text of IDEA, the federal law that codifies education rights for people with disabilities. There isn't a direct link to it on the US Department of Education's IDEA website that I could find. I've looked several times over several years. I found several links talking about IDEA but not the actual text. For those of you who like to read the text of laws relevant to their lives, as I do, I've provided the text of IDEA here. Enjoy.
