Funding may be an issue for some districts, but the most important problem is how to utilize the funds available. National and State programs need to investigate the needs along with resources so that the use of funds is maximized. Training, networking and programming are the most needed facets of being progressive with Special Needs assistance. Making sure legislators aware of the shortage in programming is critical.
It is also very important that social programs include NT peers. Once programs start including NT peers, NT peers will learn how to interact with their special peers inside and outside of the school setting. This will eliminate isolation that teens with special needs face every day.
