The transition from K-12 to post-secondary education is extremely difficult for any student. For students with disabilities, the challenges in this transition are magnified exponentially. Contributing to the challenges students with disabilities face in this transition are the significant changes in the laws that protect them.
This program, presented by Attorney Robert M. Tudisco, will examine how protections under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (Section 504), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), significantly change and/or disappear upon high school graduation. Tudisco will also address the changes in the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and the law with respect to Accommodations for High Stakes Testing. The presentation will discuss the changes in the law, as well as discussing proactive practical strategies for attorneys to advise their clients, in order to minimize the impact of this transition.

Outstanding presentation! If the attorney has not worked with his local/area/state special education districts, he should pursue this avenue because his presentation needs to be shared with school personnel and parents. I speak as a retired special education administrator with many years of experience.
