Abstract

The Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, our nation's federal special education law, states that students with disabilities are to be provided specially designed instruction. Specially designed instruction refers to the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction that is presented to these students. Accordingly, the design of an appropriate curriculum for special education students in urban schools is discussed in this article. First, the unique circumstances of urban special education students are discussed. Afterward, a comprehensive curriculum model that can be used to design an appropriate curriculum for these students is presented.
