Disabled, chronically, and terminally ill children may receive their education in a variety of ways. Some are taken from their homes and live in state-sponsored institutions. There are also special or segregated schools where special needs children are bused to locations within a community. The most common form of education is a segregated classroom which is within the local or home school. Other children may spend part of their day “mainstreamed” into regular classes like music, P.E., art, or lunch. There are also children who are in the regular classroom (inclusion) with an aide or resource teacher available for special assistance. Others may be assigned only a portion of the daily assignment (Content Mastery).
