What is Special Education?

Here is a great info-graphic on Special Education in the United States. According to it’s information, Special Education is defined as “specifically designed instruction to meet unique needs of a child with a disability.” It also shows the variety of special needs including: specific learning disability, language/speech impairment, intellectual disability, emotional disturbance, hearing impairment, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, visual impairment, multiple disabilities, deaf-blindness, autism, traumatic brain injury, and developmental delay. It illustrates how these are represented among those 13% in special education. It also examines the Individual Education Program, IEP, and the Committee for Special Education, CSE. This wording may change slightly across the US, but the same basic principle holds true. The IEP and CSE are there to individually support the child and make sure they truly reach their goals.
