SPECIAL KIDS ARE OUR BUSINESS

Special Education is a federally funded program designed to provide access to a free and appropriate education to children with disabilities up to age 21 in public school systems. Schools must provide services according to the regulations set forth in the Individuals with Disabilities Act, known as IDEA. All public schools in the U.S. are required by law to adhere to these regulations and provide direct and supportive services to assist children with disabilities.

Special education services range from the provision of a communicative device for a child who cannot speak, auditory devices for the hearing impaired and a wheel chair or other suitable device for the child who is physically handicapped, to clarifying questions or allowing a child with a language processing disorder to take an oral test instead of a written one. Services depend on the severity of the disability and on the specific needs of the individual child and are outlined in the Individualized Education Plan.
