The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act were two of the main laws that help fund special education and protect the rights of students with disabilities. The inclusion of students with disabilities into public schools became law in 1954 with the Brown v. Board of Education case that contended for equivalent access to public schools. One of the prime questions in instruction is: what do you do with the troublesome students who make learning strenuous for the rest of the class (Moser, 2015)? Addressing the needs of special education students in a general education instruction classroom requires deliberate and important coordinated effort between general education and special education teachers.
