Title: Looking to the Past: Thirty Years of History Worth Remembering
Reference: Music Therapy Perspectives 25:2 (2007) p.94-99
Abstract: The author, a music therapist, provides her personal reflections on schools prior to the passage of PL 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. She presents some of the historical highlights of special education as a professional who witnessed the educational changes this law set forth and describes the place of music in that history. In the years since the passage of PL 94-142, significant progress has been made toward developing and implementing educational programs and services for students with the most severe disabilities. Many of these students now receive music education and music therapy as part of their educational programs.
