Navigating the Struggling Reader's Legal Rights

March 7

9:00am - 3:00pm

Frank H. Ricketson Law Bldg, Room 190

This Symposium is for advocates and parents of struggling readers. These students are entitled to education services under three different laws in Colorado: the READ Act, the IDEA, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. This Symposium will explain how these laws interact, how struggling readers can access special reading education, and how these laws protect students from unnecessary exclusion or discipline.
