Services Available to Students with Disabilities
September 12, 2011
School districts are required to identify children in need of special education services each year. Services needed for children may be arranged within the district or by contracting with another district or agency.
According to state and federal statutes, children with disabilities are those with disabilities in any of the following areas: vision, hearing, physical development, emotional development, speech or language development, and intellectual development.
Children eligible for services through school districts include children ages zero to twenty-one. Programs for preschool children may range from programs for parents (in-home training for ages infant to age three) to programs at a center or a school (ages 3 to 5).
Parent or heads of families should contact the school district superintendent or the Special Education Department of E.S.U. No. 8 at Neligh if any of the following conditions apply in their family:
1. The parent suspects his or her child (preschool or school age) may have a disability and would like to secure an evaluation for the child.
2. The child (preschool or school age) has been diagnosed with a disability and is eligible for services.
