Laws Relating to AEM

AEM, it’s not just a good idea. It’s the law! The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as reauthorized in 2004, requires that elementary and secondary school students with disabilities who need print instructional materials in an accessible format receive them in a timely manner. This means that school districts must take reasonable steps to provide Accessible Educational Materials (AEM) to eligible students with disabilities without delay, typically at the same time as other students receive educational materials.
