National Center for Learning Disabilities Provides State by State Special Education Scorecards

Share this on:

     The National Center for Learning Disabilities has provided scorecards for every state that includes information on state special education enrollment (including the number of students with specific learning disabilities), student performance on key indicators, federal funding provided to support special education in each state, and the state's rating by the U.S. Department of Education on its State Performance Plan. Key indicators include the percentage of students with an IEP who: graduate  with a regular diploma, drop out of school, and score proficient on state assessments in reading and math. The scorecard also provides information on how much a state received in IDEA federal funding as well as how much more it would receive if the IDEA was fully funded. The scorecards are easy to access by going to and then clicking on your state.
