The disability community is full of acronyms that people constantly use in writing and in conversation. When promoting progress for students with disabilities it’s important to know what those acronyms stand for. Acronyms are used in order to abbreviate names or phrases. The Center for Parent Information & Resources has developed a list of special education and disability-related acronyms to help parents, educators, administrators and others working in the field of special education untangle the alphabet soup of special education.
