Article 7 sets forth the school’s responsibility to provide disabled students with a free appropriate education (FAPE). It requires the state to provide disabled students between the ages of 3-22 with a FAPE. Special education services must be rendered in the least restrictive environment (LRE), meaning that disabled students are integrated with their typical peers as much as possible.

Under Article 7, a student is eligible for special education services if he or she falls under one or more categories of disability:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Blind or visually impaired
  • Cognitive disability
  • Deaf or hearing impaired
  • Deaf and blind
  • Developmental delay
  • Emotional disability
  • Language or speech impairment
  • Multiple disabilities
  • Other health impairment
  • Orthopedic impairment
  • Specific learning disability
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
