Abstract

The Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 was enacted by Congress on November 19th of that year for the progression of remedial education for disabled children. This Act states that every child with a disability has the right to public education in the states. Because this Act was enacted fairly recently in history we must ask ourselves what was considered education for special needs students before 1975? Also, what events sparked a movement leading up to this legislation? To uncover this information we will be researching articles found on websites such as The Hammel Institute on Disabilities, The Department of Education, and appropriate TWU records.
