WASHINGTON (Dec. 17, 2020) – The Office of Special Education Programs released two new OSEP Fast Facts infographics focused on Asian and Hispanic and/or Latino children with disabilities in the U.S.

“OSEP recently released two other Fast Facts on race and ethnicity, American Indian or Alaska Native Children with Disabilities and Black or African American Children with Disabilities,” according to an OSEP blog. “Together, these Fast Facts represent four of the seven federal race/ethnicity reporting categories used under IDEA.”
