It’s Happening — Budget Cuts are Affecting Students in Special Education.

According to Disability Scoop, the National Center for Learning Disabilities recently surveyed more than 1,000 parents of students with disabilities across the country.  More than half said they have seen differences in their child’s special education services because of budget cuts in the last year. Class sizes have increased and services have decreased for many students.

“The level of services is changing not based on the nature of the services the child needs but based on budget availability,” said Lindsay Jones, the organization’s director of public policy and advocacy. “That is directly contrary to the law.”

In 2013, Federal special education funding was cut $579 million under sequestration. Further cuts are expected next year unless lawmakers act to avert them.
