Abstract :As the Act on Special Education for Disabled Persons, etc has been enacted and the number of students who have severe and multiple disabilities among students with disabilities has increased, the needs for services related to special education have also grown. However, it is not easy to understand the current situation of services related to special education due to the lack of studies on services related to special education in South Korea. This study aimed to make understanding of the current situation of services related to special education in South Korea based on the literature reviews and the latest statistics on services related to special education and to understand and explore their problems. In results of analyzing current services related to special education that have been provided, some problems have been disclosed that only small number of students with disabilities have been therapeutically supported because of the complicated diagnosis and evaluation procedure to receive therapeutic support; and unpaid special education paraprofessionals lack in expertise. Moreover, there are detailed clauses in the Act to assist students with disabilities in attending school by providing mobility, even though it should be given according to the types and degrees of disabilities. To solve the problems of services related to special education in South Korea, the suggestions can be made as follows; (1) the diagnosis and evaluation procedure to provide therapeutic support need to be simplified, (2) the qualification criteria for special education paraprofessionals need to be prepared to secure their expertise, and (3) the vehicle for school attendance needs to be provided according to the types and degrees of disabilities of students.
