New federally funded special-ed web site launches

The National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) has launched a new web site that features the most recent documents from NASDSE’s Project Forum, which is funded by the Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs. According to Project Forum, the aim of its new web site is to facilitate improved services to children and youth with disabilities by gathering and sharing information that supports changes to policy and practice at the national, state, and local levels. The site features a database of documents relevant to special-ed teachers and administrators, including the organizations’ yearly 15 hot topics in the special-ed field and policy analyses of those topics. The site also maintains, in collaboration with Regional Resource Centers, a national database of state laws, policies, and regulations that govern special education. According to NASDSE, the site distributes information that will contribute to better results for children with disabilities.
