Special education today is still focused on helping children with
disabilities learn. But this no longer has to mean placing kids in a special
classroom all day long. In fact, federal law requires that students who receive
special education services be taught alongside their non-disabled peers as much
as possible. here is no ?one size fits all? approach to special education. It?s
tailored to meet each student?s needs. Special education refers to a range of
services that can be provided in different ways and in different settings.
