One of the foundations of our present educational system in the United States is that of providing an education for all children. This principle has led to the concept of special education, a program of instruction specifically designed for special children--usually children who deviate from the normal to such an extent that a regular education program would be impractical and/or impossible.
School programs of education for special children are receiving increased emphasis. The special education programs in most states have doubled or redoubled in the past two decades. The basic, goading force behind recent developments has been the insistent parents of exceptional children. Also, new technological developments and the assistance of volunteers and teachers' aides have brought changes and improvements.
