    • The obligation to make a free appropriate public education available to all children with disabilities does not apply with respect to children—
      • (i) aged 3 through 5 and 18 through 21 in a State to the extent that its application to those children would be inconsistent with State law or practice, or the order of any court, respecting the provision of public education to children in those age ranges; and
      • (ii) aged 18 through 21 to the extent that State law does not require that special education and related services under this subchapter be provided to children with disabilities who, in the educational placement prior to their incarceration in an adult correctional facility—
        • (I) were not actually identified as being a child with a disability under section 1401 of this title; or
