Policymakers and educators have long recognized the importance of addressing the needs of youth with disabilities through special education support programs and services. These programs range from academic support resources offered during school to services designed to produce positive transitions after schooling is completed.

We also assess the outcomes of special education practices, noting the challenges special needs youth can face depending on factors such as socioeconomic status, health conditions, or socialization goals.
