New path for parental oversight of disabled adult children readied for full House vote

The bill provides a way for parents to stay in the loop as children with disabilities turn 18.

Legislation creating a new path for parents of children with disabilities to stay involved in their children’s education is advancing to a final vote in the House.

The legislation (HB 19) would simplify the legal process needed for parents to stay informed after students on Individual Education Plans (IEPs) turn 18.

The bill would make it so that a year before turning 18, the IEP student would be fully informed about what turning 18 means and work with his or her education providers
