The school or type of classroom where your child will be taught. Based on your child’s needs, these range from the regular classroom in the child’s regular school to a special-needs classroom, a separate school, or a special program in the home or a hospital. Placement also refers to how often your child will be in the regular classroom with non-disabled peers, and how often they will be in a different classroom with specialists. The IDEA law requires students to be placed in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). More about LRE.
