Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Individuals with disabilities are some of the most vulnerable members of our school systems. Many students with disabilities require ongoing support in order to participate in all aspects of daily school life. Support in academic, behavioral, and social aspects is needed for students with disabilities to be successful. Over the past few decades, advances in research and practice have led to significant improvements in our ability to provide services in schools for students with disabilities. Vigilance is required in order to ensure that these advances continue to build and positively improve, such that students with disabilities have a positive school experience.

The aim of this Special Issue is to attract papers that present advances in research and/or practice for students with disabilities in school systems. Papers addressing students with disabilities and methods/strategies to improve the school experience for students and teachers are encouraged. Submissions across all disability types are encouraged and welcomed.
