Just weeks ago, special education students across America had one-on-one aides, physical and speech therapy and counseling in school. Then came the coronavirus outbreak, and schools closed.
While many of America’s children are working through take-home packets or taking classes online, some families of special education students are still struggling to line up learning for their children.
“Even though Mom and Dad may be home, they are not special education teachers, speech or language pathologists or occupational therapists,” said Peg Kinsell, policy director for the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network, a New Jersey group that supports families of children with disabilities.
