Children who have such disabilities need specialized plans or educational needs to thrive in the public education system. These disabilities may include:
Children with disabilities are evaluated and a plan is instituted by meetings that may include educators, parents, guidance counselors, psychologists, administrators or those instituted in specialized fields in accordance with the child's needs. The child may receive their services either in a general classroom setting or in a special educational setting, perhaps in small groups with children of similar needs. Some children may require being taught in a special school environment, where there are fewer children per teacher so the child can receive individual attention. The teacher also may have specific credentials or licences in order to teach children with special educational needs.
Children who have certain disablities such as autism or certain levels of autism are bullied close to 50% more then children who don't have aspects of autism. A major concern for families of autisic children.
