Hughes, Heather; Combes, Bertina H.; Metha, Smita Shukla
Journal of Special Education Leadership, v25 n2 p90-98 Sep 2012
The number of children with ASDs quadrupled between 2000-2001 and 2009-2010, from 93,000 to 378,000. More children with ASDs are being served in public school systems. Due process hearings and cases involving students with ASDs represent the most rapidly growing area of litigation in special education. Special education administrators' knowledge of ASDs will impact what types of instruction, resources, and related services are made available to address this growing need. (Contains 1 table.)
