  • Language Access & Translation Rights – View
  • IDEA further defines each of these disability terms. We’ve provided those definitions on pages 3 and 4. Under IDEA, a child may not be identified as a “child with a disability” primarily because he/she speaks a language other than English and does not speak or understand English well. A child may also not be identified as having a disability just because he/she has not had enough appropriate instruction in math or reading.
