Special Education System

Special education teaches numerous core academic skills.  These lessons are specially designed to meet the unique needs of children who have disabilities. According the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act a federal law known as IDEA students that are eligible for special education are entitled to the same rights as typically developing students which is a free, appropriate, public education frequently referred to as FAPE.

State and federal laws, which incorporate methodologies, and processes that must be followed by parents, school districts, and relative service agencies, drive Special Education. Special education can include special instruction in the classroom, at home, in hospitals or institutions, or in other settings. This definition of special education comes from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Public Law 105-17.
Over 6.5 million children ages 6 through 21 receive special education and related services each year in the United States. Each of these children receives instruction that is specially designed to:

  1. Meet the child’s unique needs (that result from having a disability); and
  1. Help the child learn the information and skills that other children are learning.
