Despite a federal mandate for students with disabilities to be educated alongside their peers without disabilities to the maximum degree appropriate, many students with intellectual disability continue to be educated primarily in segregated settings. In this poster presentation, I will share my findings from analysis of 40 years of federally reported data on the educational placement of students with intellectual disability. Specifically, I examined the degree placements have trended toward less restrictive environments. I found historical trends of incremental progress toward less restrictive settings, but no evidence of such progress in recent years. Furthermore, most students were educated predominantly in segregated settings every year. I discuss how these findings relate to previous studies, as well as implications for IEP teams and advocates for educational inclusion.
