Comment:
The IDEA Practices website contains an incredible amount of information related
to IDEA, the nation's fundamental special education law. I have used this site
with special education teaching credential candidates in a course related to
IEPs and special education legislation. Seeing how the law is actually carried
out, hearing about ongoing legislation as it relates back to IDEA, and having a
clearinghouse of information available to them was an invaluable experience. I
found the most beneficial part of the site to be the sections where IDEA is
related to areas that are of utmost concern to students as they go through their
training programs - areas such as assessment, cultural and linguistic
diversity, curriculum and instruction, family and community, and general
education.
