As a Christian non-profit dedicated to assisting intellectually disabled children and adults, Carmona Caravan is committed to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to achieve their goals and live life to the fullest. One of the key ways we do this is by helping families understand their rights and options when it comes to special education for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
In this blog post, we'll provide an overview of special education and intellectual disabilities, including your rights and options as a parent or caregiver.
Special education refers to programs and services that are designed to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities. These programs and services are provided at no cost to families and are intended to help students with disabilities achieve academic success and reach their full potential.
