What is Special Education?

Special education is defined as specially designed instruction to meet the needs of an exceptional student.

A student may be considered eligible for special education if:

He / She has one or more of the following disabilities:

  • autism / pervasive development disorder
  • serious emotional disturbance
  • neurological impairment
  • deafness / hearing impairment
  • specific learning disability
  • mental retardation
  • other health impairment
  • physical disability
  • speech impairment
  • blindness / visual impairment

If an IEP Team, based upon recommendations of a multidisciplinary evaluation, determine that a child is in need of special education.

In addition, mentally gifted students are eligible for special education programming, if an IEP team concludes there is a need.
