Public Policy

Paid for with private funds

Part of PACER Center’s commitment to children with disabilities includes ensuring that the state and federal laws protecting the rights of people with disabilities remain strong. PACER works in coalition with other disability organizations to support special education laws and other related legislation.
PACER Legislative Priorities

The federal special education law is the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA). PACER publishes materials and provides workshops on IDEA to inform parents and professionals of their rights and responsibilities under the law.

Working for Change Using the Power of Personal Story

When parents try to improve services for all children with disabilities, not just their own child,—this is called advocating for systems change. This webinar will explain how parents of children with disabilities can help change systems by telling their own personal stories. By sharing a personal story with the right people, parents can help improve services and supports for children with disabilities and their families.
