As part of dLCV’s mission is to advocate for individuals with disabilities to receive services in the least restrictive environment, we’ve been closely monitoring legislation throughout the 2021 sessions that seek to modify Children’s Services Act (CSA) funding.
As we near the end of this session, what has happened in the world of special education so far? It’s been an incredible year looking at the impacts of Covid-19 in our schools, the funding mechanisms of the Children’s Services Act, regulatory definitions of traumatic-brain injury, and so much more!
In July of 2017, lawmakers passed legislation to allow dLCV to receive serious incident reports from community providers licensed by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) that provide services to individuals with disabilities across the Commonwealth.
dLCV continues to monitor legislation that seeks to allow equity in public and private school education for children and youth with disabilities.
