Section 504 vs. IDEA: Understanding the Fundamentals (SPC17055)

Though Section 504 and IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) both exist to serve students with disabilities and have similar requirements, they have some fundamental differences as well. In this course, Jose Martín, a lawyer with years of experience working with schools, explains these differences and what schools need to do in order to be compliant with both. He discusses big picture concepts and minute details such as specific eligibility criteria. Mr. Martín also includes a discussion about challenging situations that may arise in determining a student's eligibility under Section 504 or Special Education.
