Oregon’s special ed needs hit new high

Oregon Live:

Among school-age children, one of every eight students qualifies for special education. Learning disabilities are the leading cause, with about 28,000 Oregon students in that category, the report said.

The fastest-growing group of special education students are those labeled “other health impaired,” a catch-all for students who have “limited strength, vitality or alertness” in class because of a chronic or acute health problem. Most of them have attention-deficit disorder or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
