In the highly litigated area of Special Education, it is imperative that professionals in the field understand the legal requirements of providing a free appropriate public education to students with disabilities. This indispensable textbook prepares the reader with the essential skills to locate pertinent information in law libraries, on the Internet, and other sources to keep abreast of the constant changes and developments in the field. Now in the third edition, the entire textbook has been thoroughly updated and revised with the latest information on the statutes, regulations, policy guidance, and cases on special education law, as well as the most current information on: the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
