Integrate IDEA 2004 into your course!
This IDEA 2004 Update Edition
reflects the IDEA 2004 legislation in two ways:

  • An "IDEA 2004" icon appears in the margins adjacent to relevant discussions throughout the book that have been revised to reflect IDEA '04.
  • "Guide to IDEA 2004" has been included as an appendix. It provides side-by-side comparison of IDEA '04 versus the previous '97 legislation for each of the statutes and a little friendly "background" where it will help the reader better understand the practical implications of the law.
