Limited Capacity seats available

This study used descriptive statistics, rating and ranking procedures and responses to open-ended survey questions to examine predictions of 137 Special Education teachers who provide educational support to students with moderate to severe disabilities about 13 concepts that influence the future of Special Education in America. The study expanded on a previous research project which surveyed 447 general educators and members of the public. This study created a picture of 21st century Special Education as an effort to secure funding for programs to balancing the academic requirements with the individual needs of the child and keeping up with emerging technologies.

Participants will be able to:
1. Identify the key concepts that the Special Education teachers identified as the most influential for the future of education.
2. Recognize and discuss with others potential concerns for the future based on the results of the open-ended survey questions.
3. Affirm the current data and share in pairs or small groups to brainstorm other possible concerns for the future of Special Education.
