What is the difference between mainstream education and special education?

Special Education is different than mainstream education in that the classes are smaller and instructional techniques are modified as are instructional materials. Often times, there is an instructional aide in the classroom to provide support for both the teacher and the students. When the size of the class is 8 or less students, the opportunities for individualized instruction, reteaching and clarification increase dramatically. This model allows the students to acquire academic skills they couldn't acquire in a mainstream setting. For the most part, Special Education classrooms use the same textbooks as the mainstream classrooms, and the students are expected to meet the same academic standards as mainstream students.

Special Education also needs more time to learn, they need a lot help in orde to finish something. Whereas mainstream students, they can access to things easily. They can learn easy.

Would a diagnosis of Developmental coordination disorder qualify a child for special education services?

To qualify for special education in most states, you need to prove that there is a discrepancy between intelligence and acheivement. In other words, there is usually a processing deficit that hinders learning. Many simple handicaps do not effect processing or the learning process. If this is the case, then a student with a disability would probably qualify for a 504 plan. These plans often allow for accomodations in the classroom and/or materials, tests, etc. They do not allow for modifications to content that the student is given. You can find out more about 504 plans at http://www.chtu.org/504.html.

Can a child who is in special education who is cognitively impaired go to college?

Many students with learning disabilities and low IQ scores are still able to go to college. Of course, severity of the cognitive imparity will be a major factor. However, most students with pull-out classes and study support in high-school, are able to find colleges with good support systems in place. For instance, colleges can provide waivers for certain class requirements, remedial and pre-college classes to help out students with special needs. The best online resource about planning for colllege can be found at the link on this page.

My child who has short term memory and speech problems just graduated from college in nursing. We spent a lot of time with speech and language therapists (outside of school) working on math and speech and coping skills. Also, he spent a year with Sensory Integration through Occupational Therapy when he was 10.

Should Special Education be self contained pull-out program or inclusive?

I think it depends on the child. If a kid can be in a class with other kids and not either totally disrupt them or keep them from learning, then inclusion is fine and they will improve their social skills and probably find good role models.

If the kid is violent, a constant disruption, etc., than they are messing with the education of all the rest of the kids in the class. In this case, they need to be removed from the regular class.

There are many benefits. One is more funding for the school itself and a higher reputation in the community.
