Special education and the laws governing it has come a long way since the 1970s. Yet, as you have seen throughout this course, it is a work in progress. In this module’s assignment you will look at where we have been and where we are today.
To complete this assignment, do the following:
- Select and research a Disability Category that is NOT your course project category or a category you used in the previous module written assignments. Use 2-3 reputable resources (for example, research journals, articles, or books). You may use your textbook for one of these resources. Focus your research on how this disability was addressed in terms of education, accommodation, and family involvement prior to and/or in the early years of IDEA and how this disability is addressed today.
