Thanks to everyone who took part in the IDEA National Survey Project. We really appreciate your help. The survey closed on July 12, 2011. We received over 3,000 responses and are in the process of analyzing them.
The information you provide in response to the IDEA National Survey Project will be used to write a report about the experiences of children with disabilities and their parents under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The IDEA National Survey Project report will focus on whether the rights of parents and children with disabilities are protected throughout all aspects of the special education process, including evaluations, IEPs, special education decisions, and Due Process Hearings (Impartial Hearings).
NEW! The IDEA National Survey Project included some questions about the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and alternative assessments. The survey found that parents receive only limited information about the alternative assessments and their impact on their child's education. Read our ESEA Assessment Fact Sheet here.
The Survey Report will be published on this website when complete. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Butler, IDEA Survey Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
