WHAT IS SPECIAL EDUCATION?

Special Education is specially designed instruction provided to children who are identified with a disability and require modifications to the general curriculum in order for them to make adequate progress.  These services are provided at no cost to the parent or child.

 

The federal law under which children are identified and served is the Individuals with Disabilities Act, as amended.  The Rhode Island Department of Education creates the regulations which mirror the Federal regulations required to implement the federal law.
