National Special Education Day

December 2, 2022 all-day

National Special Education Day is observed annually on December 2nd.

Special Education Day marks the anniversary of our nation’s first federal special education law which was signed by President Gerald Ford on December 2, 1975.   This law is the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

IDEA made education available to all American children and this day honors the progress that has been made in special education.
