Recent and Continuing Initiatives and Practices in Special Education
Darrow, Alice-Ann; Adamek, Mary S.
Music Educators Journal, v104 n2 p32-37 Dec 2017
A number of initiatives in special education have occurred in the United States over the years, some mandated by amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Having a working knowledge of these initiatives allows music educators to have informed discussions with colleagues and parents and participate more fully in Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings. Adopting special education practices that are appropriate to music education can also promote consistent and coordinated efforts on behalf of students with disabilities. This article includes summaries of current practices and initiatives in special education. For music educators who would like a basic understanding of their colleagues' discipline, these summaries offer useful information that can facilitate the inclusion of students with disabilities.
