Reauthorization of the individuals with disabilities education improvement act (IDEA, 2004): The peer-reviewed research requirement
IDEA, Law, Policy
Journal of Disability Policy Studies
Due to an insufficient focus on efficacious practices, the reauthorized IDEA requires Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams to base the selection of special education, related services, and supplementary aids and services on peer-reviewed research (PRR), to the extent practicable. This article examines the litigation addressing the PRR requirement, presents the federal policy initiatives to support implementation of PRR and the controversy surrounding an expanded federal influence, and poses several questions pertaining to the implementation of the PRR requirement. © Hammill Institute on Disabilities 2010.
