Your rights as an employee and special needs parent

Being the parent of a child with special needs comes with a lot of responsibility. Not only do parents need to know how to properly care for their children, but they might not be able to leave their job to care for their children full-time. If parents still need to work, they should also know their rights as the caregiver of a child with special needs.

Serving the needs of the educationally challenged

The federal government requires that all children -- including those with cognitive deficits -- receive equal access to education. This means that, for children with special educational needs, the local school districts must provide special services to meet those needs. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) governs how the needs of these children must be met.

Common classroom accommodations for special education students

Having a child with special needs can be challenging, especially for those who don't know how much help is available today. That help includes the classroom. Special education classes provide accommodations and modifications for children with special needs in Providence, Rhode Island.
