But that is exactly what is happening to many students on a regular basis, according to Dr. Melaura Erickson-Tomaino and Dr. Edward Miguel, co-founders of Port View Preparatory School® which caters to the needs of K-22 students with developmental disabilities in Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties. … Among the more than six million students attending California public schools, some 3.9% have been identified as developmentally disabled.
