This document is intended to help clarify the relationship between Maine’s Unified Special Education Regulations (MUSER) and Adult Education as it relates to the education of enrolled students with disabilities and their special instructional needs in high school and Adult Education. Adult education programs are also required to provide services to students with disabilities in accordance with both the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The material presented in this question and answer document is the result of a set of questions developed by adult educators and answered by the Office of Special Services and the Office of Adult Education, Maine Department of Education. The answers were prepared only for the questions asked and are not intended to be an exhaustive list of questions. As additional questions arise, we will update this document.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
