Supporting learning differences

Elizabeth Kozleski talks about how schools approach learning differences and special education.

Elizabeth Kozleski is the dean’s senior scholar for teaching and learning at Stanford Graduate School of Education, where she is helping the school launch a new initiative focused on special education.

In 2014, more than 6.5 million children in the United States between the ages of 3 and 21 received special education services. On this episode of School’s In hosted by GSE Dean Dan Schwartz and Senior Lecturer Denise Pope, Kozleski discusses how schools approach educating students with learning differences, and talks about the laws and policies that govern those efforts. She explains what “response to intervention” means, and why it’s important for children to receive special education in the general education classroom.
