Eligibility for Special Services, Screening, and Assessment

  • John M. Davis
  • Jessica Broitman


This chapter will cover eligibility for special services including brief overviews of both the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act-2004 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Since our model suggests that students with NVLD often have academic and social impairment, knowing the pertinent laws will help the students and their families get the added support they will need.
