Accessibility Statement

The Department of Education’s Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) is committed to the accessibility of its electronic and information technology to individuals with disabilities by meeting requirements from Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.

Section 508 requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) website meets the Department of Education’s current accessibility standards; however, older documents may have lesser degrees of accessibility. In some such instances, OSERS has provided alternate accessible versions of the document.

For feedback or concerns related to accessibility of the IDEA website, please contact OSERS via email at
