Most studies regarding students receiving special education services focus on students who are able to receive these services within their local public school district. Information about special education students who receive their educational services in the private sector remains scarce, even though the students educated in these settings, about 1% of all special education students nationwide, are often the most disabled of all special education students. In order to learn more about this segment of the special education population, NAPSEC, an association of over 250 approved private special education programs, has conducted a study of the students who exited from its member programs. Information about the educational settings to which transfer students planned to move as well as the plans made by the graduates/aged-out students who left a NAPSEC program has been gathered. NAPSEC has studied the exit plans of these students and the findings are posted here for your review.
