(4.44) May children with differing disabilities be grouped together for instruction in the same classroom?

(4.44) May children with differing disabilities be grouped together for instruction in the same classroom?

Yes. Heterogeneous or non-categorical classroom placements for students with disabilities are allowed under federal law because a student’s “unique needs” rather than disability category or label, should ultimately determine placement. To be appropriate, the placement must be based on your child’s IEP. [34 C.F.R. Secs. 300.39 & 300.116.]
