What is special education?

There are many different types of disabilities that can qualify a student for special education services. These include, but are not limited to:

Intellectual disability

Physical disability

Emotional/behavioral disorder

Speech or language impairment

Visual or hearing impairment

Autism spectrum disorder

The IDEA requires schools to identify students who may need special education services and then evaluate them to determine if they do indeed qualify. If a student is found eligible for special education, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is created. This document outlines the specific services and supports that will be provided to the student.

The different types of special education

There are six different types of special education:

1. Autism
2. Down Syndrome
3. Asperger’s Syndrome
4. Cerebral Palsy
6. Learning Disabilities

Each type of special education has its own specific set of challenges and needs. However, all children with special needs deserve to receive a quality education that meets their individual needs and helps them reach their full potential.

Pros and cons of special education

There are pros and cons to every type of education, including special education. Some parents feel that their children will be stigmatized if they are placed in a special education class, while others feel that their children will receive the best possible education and be better prepared for life outside of school.

Some pros of special education include:

-Smaller class sizes which allow for more one-on-one attention from teachers
-Customized curriculum which is designed to meet the unique needs of each student
-In some cases, students in special education classes may be able to move at a different pace than students in regular classes, allowing them to master material before moving on

Some cons of special education include:

-Stigma attached to being in a special education class
-Feelings of isolation from classmates who are not in special education classes
-In some cases, students in special education classes may not be exposed to the same level of material as students in regular classes

What is the history of special education in the United States?

In the United States, the history of special education dates back to the 18th century when schools were first established to educate children with disabilities. However, it was not until the early 19th century that Congress passed legislation recognizing the rights of all children, including those with disabilities, to a free public education.

Over the next few decades, a number of laws and court decisions were made that helped shape the field of special education in the United States. In 1975, Congress passed the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (EHA), which guaranteed access to a free appropriate public education for all students with disabilities. This law was later amended in 1990 to become the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

IDEA guarantees that all students with disabilities have access to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE). FAPE means that special education and related services must be provided at no cost to the family and must meet the student’s individual needs. LRE means that students with disabilities should be educated in regular classrooms with their nondisabled peers whenever possible.

Since IDEA was enacted, there have been many advances in special education in the United States. Today, more students with disabilities are included in general education classrooms than ever before and are making great progress academically and socially.

Who are some famous people with disabilities who have made a difference?

There are many famous people with disabilities who have made a difference in the world. Some of these people include:

• Helen Keller – Keller was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree.

• Franklin D. Roosevelt – Roosevelt was the 32nd President of the United States. He served from 1933 to 1945, and was a member of the Democratic Party. He is also known for his work with the disabled, including through the establishment of the Social Security program.

• Stevie Wonder – Wonder is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist. A child prodigy, he has been blind since shortly after birth.

• Rolls Purcell – Purcell was an English physicist who made contributions to the fields of electricity and magnetism. He also invented the Purcell effect, which is used in nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

How can you get involved in advocating for people with disabilities?

Individuals with disabilities and their families are powerful advocates for change. Here are some ways you can get involved:

1. Speak up for what you believe in. When you see an injustice, don’t be afraid to speak out and demand change. Your voice can make a difference.

2. Educate yourself and others about the issues facing people with disabilities. The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you’ll be to advocate for positive change.

3. Get involved in your community. There are many ways to get involved, such as volunteering, joining a local organization, or becoming a mentor.

4. Be an active participant in the political process. Contact your elected officials and let them know what issues are important to you. Vote in elections and support candidates who champion the rights of people with disabilities.

5. Support organizations that fight for the rights of people with disabilities. Financial contributions can make a big impact, but there are other ways to help too, such as spreading the word about their work or volunteering your time and talents.


In conclusion, Special Education Day is a day to celebrate the progress that has been made in educating children with special needs. It is also a day to remember that there is still much work to be done in order to ensure that all children have access to quality education. We hope that you will join us in celebrating Special Education Day on December 2, 2022!
