Read the full article, Reaching Goals The Special Education program is designed to provide individualized support to students with disabilities, so that they are successful in attaining the outcomes of the general curriculum. For students with intensive needs, alternative plans are developed to help them achieve more functional goals that are defined through the IEP process. Special Education services for students with disabilities are based on students' Individual Education Programs (IEPs) and are designed to complement the general education curriculum. The alignment of IEP goals and benchmarks with the general education content standards supports the students' participation in the Maryland State Assessment program. The IEP guides the implementation of modifications and accommodations utilized to enable the students to access the general education curriculum. The IEPs for students with more intensive needs support participation in the Alternative Maryland State Assessment program.

SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS The needs of those with physical disabilities are in too and over an 11 years period in Surrey, for example, the global figure for special needs has risen http://www.ehlers-danlos.org/Info Sheets/SEN.htm
Extractions: Ehlers-Danlos Support Group Support for the New Millennium EDS Search Page YOUR CHILD AND SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS (RELEVANT TO THE UK) by Joan Benham BA Dip ED and retired Trustee of the Ehlers-Danlos Support Group UK The 1993 Education Act brought in a new Code of Practice on the identification and Assessment of Special Educational Needs. One of the fundamental principles of this Code states: "The knowledge, views and experience of parents are vital. Effective assessment and provision will be secured where there is the greatest possible degree of partnership between parents and their children and schools, LEAs (Local Education Authorities) and other agencies". Stage 3. The SEN coordinator asks for help from outside the school from specialist staff, eg educational psychologists and advisory teachers. Stage 5. There is a 5 stage timetable for the LEA to assess a child's needs. After stage 3 has been reached the maximum time in which it should be completed is 26 weeks. There is, however, a 'get-out' clause which an LEA may well invoke if it gets behind in the process. In practice the national figure for completion in the time, is around 55%. Under the new Disability Discrimination Act 1995, though no educational establishment has any duty to provide facilities for children with a disability, they must produce, from 1st September 1996, a "disability statement". This has to be included in the Governors' Annual Report and tells what services, if any, are provided for the disabled.
