ABLE in Ohio

So officially, Ohio becomes the first state to offer ABLE accounts. This accordind to the article entitled “ABLE Accounts Make Debut” by Michelle Diament over at Disability Scoop.

Running second, third and fourth are Nebraska, Tennessee and Florida. Where’s Missouri, that’s what I want to know?

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act

As someone that works in the judicial system and who has a son with special abilities, this article caught my attention. It seems that while there have been a large number of lawsuits regarding the  Individuals with Disabilities Education Act or IDEA, some now believe that rather than looking to change the law, we should perhaps look at the states with largest number of lawsuits.

The article is entitled “Reducing Special Education Lawsuits May Mean Focusing on Certain States, Not IDEA ” by¬† over at the Education Week blog. Definitely a little light legal reading.
