Our friend Cheryl Chumley noted how the state of Arkansas started a school voucher program specifically for special-needs children:

Arkansas recently launched the Succeed Scholarship Program for Students with Disabilities (SSPSD), a school voucher program for special-needs children.

SSPSD is the state’s first school choice program. It grants to parents of disabled children vouchers worth up to $6,646, which can be spent on tuition-related expenses at state-approved private schools.
