Federal Education Laws

I am doing a research study on the history of speech-language assessment
practices in United States. Is there an internet site(s) from which I might be able to download copies of the federal laws (e.g., P.L.94-142, Rehabilitation Act of 1973, etc. sinc


Helpful information about relevant public legislation on this subject can be obtained from many sources, though I am not familiar with a website specifically targeting the ''history of speech-language assessment.'' A good internet search engine can be helpful. A good website to visit initially is a service of the U.S. Government Printing Office: http://www.gpoaccess.gov/plaws/index.html. At this site, you can access the text of public laws by name and number. A couple of websites specifically devoted to discussion of relevant public laws such as 94-142 include: http://asclepius.com/angel/special.html and http://www.scn.org/~bk269/94-142.html.

Thomas E. Borton is Professor of Audiology and Director of the Speech and Hearing Clinic at Auburn University Montgomery, Montgomery, Alabama. He teaches audiology courses to undergraduate and doctoral students at AUM and Auburn University.
