An education provider has a duty to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to make sure disabled students are not discriminated against.

There are three federal laws related to protecting students with disabilities: The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504.

All these laws deal with disability, and it can be emotionally difficult to think of our children as disabled.

The use of the federal protections, such as Section 504 can help ensure kids with PKU have equal opportunity for success at school.

Some children will need a more in depth, formal plan called an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

Not everyone learns in the same way, and you can follow some tips to create a well-rounded learning atmosphere.
