The US Department of Education notes that, “in 1970, U.S. schools educated only one in five children with disabilities, and many states had laws excluding certain students, including children who were deaf, blind, emotionally disturbed or mentally retarded, from its schools.” Now, they estimate that more than 6.5 million children and youths receive special education and related services to meet their individual needs.
