Are children with disabilities equal as special education students? Is special education equal for special education students? Special Education is defined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. It requires a Free Appropriate Public Education for disabled students. Special education and related services are provided via an Individualized Education Program. The program places a child in the Least Restrictive Environment, defined as being in a regular classroom alongside nondisabled peers. However, the child may end up enduring Excessive Transportation and a harsher Student Code of Conduct, facing Timeout , Seclusion and sometimes Restraint, because of behavior treated as caused by a manifestation of the disability and not the environment, and may not always participate in Physical Education, and Graduation.
