SPEDTex can help! We provide information and resources that can help you understand your child’s disability, your rights, and responsibilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and facilitate collaboration that supports the development and delivery of services to children with disabilities in our state.
If your child is struggling in school, it’s important to find out why. If a disability is affecting your child’s educational performance, your child may be eligible for special education and related services that can help. Special education is instruction that is specially designed to meet the unique needs of eligible children who have disabilities.
Special education and related services are provided in public schools at no cost to the parents and are made available by a federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Thank You SEPAC Members!
