What do they mean by “special”?

SPECIAL education? SPECIAL services?
 
What’s so special about getting a low education, being denied necessary services to remain in your community and family, being segregated, and not having friends? 
 
Kid holding books on headDo you feel this way when thinking about your child’s special education plan or disability services yet wonder how you will find the time to fight for them, much less learn about every social service, special ed law and service? Do you not have the energy to devote to looking up special ed case law or Medicaid or insurance regulations? Don’t you have to go to work every morning? Pay the bills?
 
How can you attend millions of meetings, file every piece of paper, keep track of it all and STILL be a parent to a high-needs child?
