Dear Teacher,


I just wanted you to know; I have special needs; there are things I do not understand. I look to you to help me figure out your world. I wish you would try to figure out my world too...

Free and Appropriate Public Education F.A.P.E.

F.A.P.E. is an acronym for Free and Appropriate Public Education. It is perhaps the most misunderstood concepts of the IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). It is quite often the chief source of conflict between parents and schools. FAPE is a required component of IDEA. FAPE mandates that schools must provide access to both general and specialized education services for students with disabilities. It also specifies that the student must receive as much instruction in a general education setting as is possible.
