If your child is interested in attending college, there are plenty of options for those students with disabilities to receive services at a post-secondary institution. At graduation, services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) are discontinued, however the student still falls under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Section 504 to receive accommodations at post-secondary institutions.
