The history of special education

Historical Timeline for Students with Exceptionalities

[WLOs: 1, 2] [CLOs: 1, 4]

The history of special education has included a long and arduous path for parents, teachers, and children as exemplified in  Celebrating 35 Years of IDEA (Links to an external site.) , but this process also has generated some very positive outcomes. Beginning in 1954 with the Landmark Cases: Brown v. Board of Education (Links to an external site.), the Supreme Court ruled that separate is not equal, and therefore educating children with special needs in isolated environments does not provide an identical education to that of their non-disabled peers (Expanding Civil Rights, n.d.). Since the passage of this groundbreaking legislation, other individuals and activist groups have followed suit, fighting for the legal rights of individuals with disabilities.
