Fabric for Special Education

Under the federal law known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), millions of children with disabilities receive special services designed to meet their individual needs. Fabrics and Home would like to help support education for children with disabilities by donating .25 cents per yard for each yard of fabric sold from the online fabrics featured on our website. IDEA lists 13 different disabilities that effect school-aged children and youth. Fabrics and Home will choose one of IDEA’s disability categories and make an annual donation. We will vary each donation annually hoping to touch the lives of the many children in our country who need additional support. Many non-profit organizations build their foundations designed to provide students, families, teachers, and support staff affected by a disability with individualized resources designed to provide continuous support. Students with disabilities achieve success with appropriate individualized programs designed and implemented by caring professionals and their families.

The 13 disabilities affecting our children

  • Autism
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Other Health Impairments
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Visual Impairment
  • Deaf-Blindness

Our first donation will be made on November 14, 2019 to the Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) in order to help children and youths who are affected by a specific learning disability. A learning disability is a neurological condition that interferes with an individual’s ability to store, process and produce information. Having a learning disability can affect one’s ability to read, write, speak, spell, compute math, reason, attend, remember, coordination, social skills and emotional maturity.
