About Disabilities

children with disabilities

Sharing information and making it accessible to everyone is what Learning Links is all about. Every family with a child with a disability faces their own challenges and successes, but one thing all families share is questions. Each disability has unique behaviors and characteristics that place it in its own category according to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 2004 (IDEA).


It is important to know about these categories, so you can advocate effectively for your child's unique needs that may require specialized instruction. Here, you’ll find the technical IDEA and State definitions of disabilities followed by more easy-to-understand Learning Links facts. Follow the links to fact sheets that include more in-depth information as well as personal stories of children with disabilities.
