Does Ohio Provide Autistic Children A Free Appropriate Public Education, Sheila M. Mccarthy

Journal of Law and Health

Autistic children are handicapped children within the meaning of the EAHCS, therefore, they are entitled to receive "free appropriate public education."

Annual Survey Of Virginia Law: Handicap Law, Donald H. Stone Jan 1988

Annual Survey Of Virginia Law: Handicap Law, Donald H. Stone

University of Richmond Law Review

Disabled persons represent approximately fifteen percent of the population of the United States, making this minority group one of the largest in American society. In Virginia, it is estimated that there are 750,000 disabled persons. Most of these people are dependent upon some form of governmental services ranging from state funded residential placement to more subtle accommodation such as a wheelchair ramp to provide access to public buildings. The degree to which handicapped citizens are integrated into the mainstream of society depends upon the availability of these services and the implementation of laws insuring access to them.
