National Special Education Day
- National Special Education Day
On December 2nd, National Special Education Day recognizes changes in federal legislation that led to the nation’s first federal special education law. IDEA made education available to all American children and this day honors the progress that has been made in special education. IDEA resulted in many changes beyond bringing students equal education. The integration of students also helps to remove the stigma of disabilities. Another result of IDEA was the stimulation of technology for students with disabilities and for the classrooms. These technologies improved the education of all students.
