IDEA funding can be complex. We can help.

Our team can help schools understand and navigate IDEA funding channels, helping to optimize allocations and maximize student services.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a civil rights statute and federal education program created to ensure that all children with disabilities are not only provided the same opportunity for education as students without disabilities but also have available to them a free appropriate public education that emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs. The end goal of IDEA is to prepare children with special needs for further education, employment, and independent living.

In addition, IDEA ensures that the rights of children with disabilities and parents of such children are protected and that educators and parents have the necessary tools to improve educational results for children with disabilities.

Catapult Learning’s IDEA Services

Catapult Learning’s school partnership experts consult with schools to understand and navigate funding resource channels to ensure a fair allocation and to optimize services for their students. While parentally placed private school children do not receive Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), they’re eligible to participate in the federal education benefits of IDEA.

Students selected for these services receive an Individualized Services Plan (ISP), which is similar to an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Equitable services are push-in and/or pull-out special education instruction and related services, determined in accordance with the requirements of IDEA, including the consultation process.

Catapult Learning offers a suite of special education and related services that can be funded using IDEA allocations:
