Separate classroom or special class is a class for students with a disability who are grouped together for a special education program based on how similar their needs are. They may have the same disability or have different disabilities but their needs should be the same. Students attend separate classrooms while also attending a regular school.  For example, a child with moderate intellectual disability is eligible for special classes in which self-care is emphasized instead of academic achievement.
