Special education is designed to ensure that eligible students with disabilities receive a free and appropriate public education in accordance with State and Federal law. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides protections for families and ensures that eligible students are educated in an appropriate environment.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is intended to protect people with disabilities from discrimination. It assures that students with disabilities have access to all activities and programs of the school and provides necessary supports and accommodations.

The Special Education Department of Ludlow Elementary School provides specially designed instruction and implementation on an individual basis to children with unique needs who require individualized attention or instruction to be successful. Each child is given as much access as possible to the general curriculum so that he or she can meet the educational standards that apply to all children.
