Special Education is in many ways an oxymoron.  There isn't much "special" about some of the education in some schools. Parents think special education is some panacea to cure their child. In reality, it is simply "specially designed instruction, at no cost to the parents, to meet the unique needs of the student". That is the legal definition; in practical terms, however, knowing what might be available and how to intervene requires an informed parent.
