Kentucky Education Rights was established to work with families of children (ages 3 years to 21 years) with physical and mental disabilities in their relations to the public school systems. The childrenís medical condition(s) trigger certain protected rights under both the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, (Section 504), and the Special Education Laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Both of the former federal Acts, as well as Kentucky law recognize and require that qualified children with disabilities be provided services and/or accommodations in the pursuit of their education. Our experience over the past many years has revealed that many of these families are not familiar with these laws affecting their childrenís entitlement. Others are or have been intimidated by the process necessary to obtain these entitlements. By and large the school districts make limited resources available to these families, often as a result of their own lack of understanding concerning the disabilities, or the districtís perceived lack of financial resources.

    We exist to help your family and continue to exist because we do so! Give us a call or write.

"A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He is going to sitAmber Alert Net where you are sitting, and when you are gone, attend to those things you think are important. You may adopt all of the policies you please, but how they are carried out depends on him. He will assume control of your cities, states, and nations. He is going to move in and take over your churches, schools, universities, and corporations...the fate of humanity is in his hands."                             ~Abraham Lincoln
