FEDERAL SPECIAL EDUCATION (SEC618) DATA


Section 618 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that each state submit data about the infants and toddlers, birth through age 2, who receive early intervention services under Part C of IDEA and children with disabilities, ages 3 through 21, who receive special education and related services under Part B of IDEA.

The Static Tables provide commonly used percentages associated with the IDEA Section 618 data. The State Level Data Files are provided in Comma Separated Value (.CSV) format. This format allows for data to be easily loaded into a variety of applications. However, they are best viewed in applications that allow data to be manipulated in columns, most common of which are spreadsheets or databases (Excel, Access, etc.).
* Prior to school year (SY) 2012, the Part B Child Count and Educational Environments data and the Part C Child Count and Settings data were provided to the public in separate files.
