When it comes to children with special educational needs, many parents want the ability to give their child the same experiences as a child without special educational needs. One such experience is a good education in a safe environment.
With the recent rise in developmental disorders, such as autism and ADHD, the need for quality special education has also increased. This is why it is important for parents, educators, and even lawmakers to familiarize themselves with special education and what it entails for students with those needs.
Parents and educators who take the time to learn about special education often benefit from a deeper understanding about children with specific disorders or disabilities and their educational needs.
While the US has passed many acts, and each state has their own set of laws regarding the topic, not everyone is aware of what special education is, or they only know of the stigma that surrounds it.
If you are unsure as to whether or not your child qualifies as having special educational needs, you can always consult a doctor or school guidance counselor, for more information and resources.
With this course, you will be able to grasp what special education is, how it differs from standard education, who qualifies, and the relevant acts.
