The Special Education Process is Very Difficult

When there are economic problems invariably, government attempts to cut social services and programs. One program which has been constantly scrutinized and under attack has been special education. Today, it is harder than ever to classify a child as having a developmental disability. Years ago, children with mild, moderate and severe developmental disabilities had access to special education services.

Today, only children with severe and pervasive developmental disabilities can receive comprehensive special education services Every effort is made to keep children in regular education with their typical peers. There is a complicated evaluation process which takes weeks of professional assessments. These evaluations are then discussed at a formal highly structured committee meeting.
