January 05, 2014
Nearly 270,000 children — or one out of every 61/2 students — receive special education services in Pennsylvania’s public schools. Most children are included in regular classrooms and receive all or much of their instruction alongside students who do not have special education needs. Families partner with dedicated professionals across the commonwealth to ensure that students with disabilities receive the services they require to maximize academic achievement.
