Abstract:The article focuses on guidelines for teachers that can help them in technology education programs and work with special needs students. Various educational reform movements and legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, the Carl D. Perkins Act of 1990, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 1990 and IDEA Amendments of 1997 focus on inclusion of students with special needs in regular classrooms to the maximum extent appropriate. Students must be provided equal access to technology education programs. This can help them gain basic knowledge about a variety of careers available upon completion of school. Teachers need to be aware of specific legislation, issues, and accommodations associated with students with special needs. Evanciew, C. (2003).
