The 1997 reauthorization of IDEA added the need to consider AT for all students eligible for special education and provide AT devices and services when needed. Examine the role of the occupational therapist as a member of a team that considers and addresses AT for students with disabilities.
Please Note: The “CORE course” is no longer a requirement for the Elective Session.
IDEA REAUTHORIZATION UPDATE
The updates related to the 2004 IDEA Reauthorization have been incorporated into the Core Course and Elective Sessions. Most of the requirements remain unchanged from the 1997 reauthorization with respect to occupational therapy service delivery. However, at the time these updates were completed, the proposed implementation regulations for Part C had been issued, but the regulations had not been finalized. Please monitor the AOTA Web site for more details as they become available. When possible, language from the law was used when referring to Part C. If Part C regulation language was used, it is from IDEA 1997.
