Disability laws and special education provisions in China, Kuwait, South Korea, Turkey, and the US

This article describes disability laws and special education provisions in China, Kuwait, South Korea, Turkey, and the United States making note of the important role they have in the lives of people with disabilities. Anti-discrimination, rehabilitation, and special education laws enhance the quality of the lives of individuals with disabilities through the lifespan but differences exist in the degree of protections and services for individuals with disabilities in each country. Countries with clear educational provisions in their special education laws may have more positive social and educational outcomes for individuals with disabilities.
