The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that educational agencies conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine whether a child has a disability and the nature and extent of the special education and related services that the child needs in accordance with the procedures outlined in 34 CFR §§300.304 through 300.311.
For children who are blind or have visual impairments, the IDEA also requires that instruction be provided in braille unless, after an evaluation of the child’s reading and writing skills, needs and appropriate reading and writing media, the IEP team determines that instruction in braille is not appropriate.
