Eligibility Determination

If the child is not eligible for IDEA, then he or she can't claim its protections.  So this first series of questions will determine if the child is eligible.

The tool currently only includes the federal requirements. Federal requirements apply in all states and states may add on (but not subtract) from the Federal laws. The tool doesn't currently incorporate court decisions or other authoritative interpretation of the law that can clarify issues not explicitly clear from the statute or regulations alone.
