Special Education

Special education encompasses policies, classroom practices, and legislative approaches to advancing the learning of exceptional students. These students may require specialized instruction, resources, or other support services. Special education programs may include individualized education plans (IEPs), 504s, or other accommodations to meet the unique needs of each student. The goal of special education is to provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to reach their full potentials and to participate as fully as possible in their communities. This week on 16:1, we’re diving into the details and analyzing the work of intervention specialists, administrators, and policy makers who advance the goals of special education for students across the country.
