Investing in a successful educational experience is the major route for individuals with disabilities to become independent, productive, and contributing members of their communities. NDRN believes children with disabilities have the right to a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment.
NDRN works to ensure that education legislation taken up by Congress addresses the needs of students with disabilities and that Department of Education rules and regulations benefit students with disabilities.
