A survey from the National Center for Learning Disabilities and Understood.org finds a teaching corps that lacks confidence in their ability to meet the needs of millions of children with disabilities in the nation's public K-12 schools, but wants the training, support, and guidance to improve.


A new study of Florida students suggests that minority underidentification and overidentification in special education is connected to the racial makeup of a student's school.


When Scott Gann learned his son Dustin had dyslexia, he was shocked at the school's reaction. No one there wanted to use the word.


The action is expected to prompt a scramble among states relying on an earlier delay in the policy involving disproportional representation of minorities in special education.


The action is the latest in a long-running legal dispute that has the potential to affect millions of dollars in federal special education funding.
