Reauthorization of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act [Idea 2004]: The Peer-Reviewed Research RequirementJournal of Disability Policy Studies (2010)
Due to an insufficient focus on efficacious practices, the reauthorized IDEA requires Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams to base the selection of special education, related services, and supplementary aids and services on peer-reviewed research (PRR), to the extent practicable. This article examines the litigation addressing the PRR requirement, presents the federal policy initiatives to support implementation of PRR and the controversy surrounding an expanded federal influence, and poses several questions pertaining to the implementation of the PRR requirement.
