On October 26, 2017 the American Institutes for Research will host a presentation and discussion on the inclusion of students with disabilities in general education classrooms, a cornerstone of special education policy in the United States and many countries.
Before 1975, only one in five children with disabilities attended public school. Federal legislation changed that. With more than 6 million children receiving special education services, educators, parents, and providers face many challenges on the road to improving outcomes—and improving lives—for students with disabilities.
Our areas of expertise include
- intensive intervention (National Center on Intensive Intervention);
- supporting large-scale improvements for students with disabilities (National Center for Systemic Improvement);
- instructional and assistive technology (Center on Technology and Disability);
- teacher preparation (Center for Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability, and Reform); and
- federal special education fiscal requirements (Center for IDEA Fiscal Reporting).
