Education of Students with Disabilities. Indicator of the Month.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
This data sheet presents statistics relating to education of students with disabilities. Statistical highlights indicate that the number of students participating in federal programs for children with disabilities increased each year between 1977 and 1992, despite a decrease in elementary and secondary enrollment during the late 1970s and mid-1980s. Trends in disability classification and student placement are noted. A table presents the percentage distribution, and the percentage of total enrollment, of children (ages 0-21) served by federally supported programs for students with learning disabilities, speech impairments, mental retardation, serious emotional disturbance, and preschool disabilities, for the school years ending 1977 to 1992. Two graphs show trends in these data for selected school years from 1977 to 1992. (JDD)
