We acknowledge that some students with severe disabilities are not being taught in general education.

We are…

Dukes, Charles; Berlingo, Lauren – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2020
Inclusive education for students with severe disabilities has and continues to spark intense debate.

Some of the principles of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act are thought to be at the heart of the…
