Assembly Democrats News Release

Benson, Wagner & Lampitt Bill to Provide Stable Education Environment for Special Needs Students Gets Final Legislative Approval

(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Daniel Benson, Connie Wagner and Pamela Lampitt to establish stability in special education programming to help students suffering from developmental disabilities received final legislative approval Thursday and now heads to the governor's desk.

"Transition and change in routine are very difficult for children suffering with Autism or other developmental disabilities," said Benson (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "Those who are shuffled from school-to-school are often prone to regression, which, in some cases, makes learning setbacks almost impossible to overcome. This situation is incredibly frustrating for parents and often times confusing and scary for their children. We can and must do better and hopefully this bill will see to it that we do just that."

The bill (A-2739) directs the State Board of Education to create regulations requiring school districts to develop a plan to establish stability in special education programming. The plan must take into account the consistency of the location, curriculum, and staffing in the provision of special education programs and services.
