Does the Individuals Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Education
for the Handicapped Act Ammendments of
1986, focus on services provided to
families, children, communities, or to
schools?

I am thinking they provide services to
families. Don't they?

Education of the handicapped is the primary goal of these acts, although, of course, supporting families is part of reaching this goal.
