This October marks the 30th Anniversary of the passage of Public Law 99-457, which established Part C and mandated Part B, Section 619 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Throughout the week of October 3-7, 2016, OSEP will run a campaign showcasing many perspectives from the field, including researchers, families, practitioners, and even individuals who participated in early childhood services through Part C and Part B, Section 619 Preschool. To participate in the social media campaign, follow @OSERS and post your stories about the impacts of this law on Facebook Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube using the hashtag #babyIDEAis30.
