Lucas, Matthew D.
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p63-66 Fall 2008
As the number of students practicing Islam increases it is ever-more important for all educators including special education teachers to understand a variety of specific Islam-related factors for the purpose of improving the education of these students. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to present some of the common religious practices found in Islam and the common practices related to serving students in the special education setting that could possibly conflict with these religious practices. Also, the paper presents possible solutions to these dilemmas.
