The authors discuss the roles of central agencies for Jewish education in providing Jewish education services for those with special needs. Their findings are based on results of a survey of special educators designed to gather information about the types of services provided, and how the providers collaborate with other communal agencies and institutions. The authors discuss what tends to advance this work and what tends to constrain it.
