This is one of a series of question and answer (Q&A) documents prepared by OSERS at the U.S. Department of Education to address some of the most important issues raised by requests for clarification on a variety of high-interest topics.  The IDEA and its implementing regulations contain a number of significant changes for parentally placed private school children with disabilities. This Q&A document supersedes the Department’s guidance issued in March 2006 and January 2007 and includes additional topics that have arisen as the field has implemented the regulations.
