The annual Innovations in Special Education Awards recognize the exemplary programs and services for students with special needs provided by public school districts and private special education schools in New Jersey.

The program is part of Special Education Week in New Jersey and is sponsored by the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) and ASAH, which has served the private special education community since 1974.

Selected programs for 2022 will be honored during a virtual event held in conjunction with Special Education Week in New Jersey in May.
