Are you confused about how the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) affects your child with learning difficulties? Do you want to know how to advocate for your child in the face of NCLB-mandated school-wide tests? To help you help your child, the National Center for Learning Disabilities offers three practical, parent-friendly Advocacy Briefs to help you take advantage of choices and opportunities available under NCLB:
If your child is eligible for special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), it is important to choose the most appropriate assessment option for NCLB-mandated tests your child will take. This brief provides practical tips for making that decision.
You can download a free copy of NCLD's No Child Left Behind: Understanding Assessment Options for IDEA-eligible Students.
Children with disabilities covered under IDEA or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act must be provided appropriate accommodations necessary to participate in NCLB-mandated tests. Read about how to make these accommodations part of your child's Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Section 504 Plan.
You can download a free copy of NCLD's No Child Left Behind: Determining Appropriate Assessment Accommodations for Students with Disabilities.
NCLB provides options for supplemental educational services and school choice, under certain conditions, for children in Title I schools. Find out whether your child can take advantage of these options and how to go about it.
