Surrogate Parents and Children with Disabilites: State-level Approaches

  1. $0.00

Surrogate Parents and Children with Disabilities: State-level Approaches, an in-depth policy analysis from Project Forum at NASDSE in collaboration with the Legal Center for Foster Care and Education, is based on survey findings from 41 state departments of education. The document provides a detailed introduction to the intricacies of the provision of surrogate parents for children identified for service under IDEA. Survey findings include that most states have issued policy or formal guidance pertaining to surrogate parents and children with disabilities, and most also described efforts to ensure that the educational decision making rights of biological and adoptive parents were preserved whenever possible. Although only just more than a quarter of respondents described having a statewide surrogate parent program that addresses recruitment, training and retention of surrogates, all 12 of these states emphasized the value of a statewide system for ensuring that children with disabilities receive appropriate services.
