Legislation of interest

Three legislative resources

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 represent three attempts to improve the living conditions of those with disabilities. Comparison chart.

The Hughes Bill

A.B. 2586 deals with the behavior interventions that can be used with students receiving special education who have difficulties conforming to acceptable behavior patterns. It requires that when behavioral interventions are used that they are administered in a manner that respects human dignity and personal privacy, and that ensures a pupil's right to placement in the least restrictive environment.
