Knowing Your Rights When Your Child is Autistic

Learning that your child suffers from autism can be a shocking blow to many parents. You may feel overwhelmed and lost but you can't let your feelings of dismay keep you from understanding the rights that you and your child have. Autism research isn't limited to the treatments, studies and developments related to autism. It also includes laws that apply to your child. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) entitles children with disabilities to a public education that is both free and appropriate. Understanding your rights under this act will ensure that your child is not denied an education based on the fact that he is autistic.
