Recognizing that parents, families and caregivers of special needs students have unique concerns and needs, the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) launched a Special Education Parent Intake Center to provide students with the special support they need.
SPECIAL EDUCATION PARENT INTAKE CENTER
The Dallas ISD Special Education Department created the Parent Intake Center to strengthen communication with parents and families of special needs students ages 3 to 21 who face significant challenges and need additional support.
The center is a point of access for parents with students in special education who need resources to:
- Resolve concerns regarding special education services and become involved in their child’s education
- Become informed about educational processes and effective parenting
- Obtain services in the community and beyond
- Plan transitions for the special needs student
The center is staffed by social workers and supported by central staff from the district's Special Education Department. The center is designed to assist families in developing the communication, collaboration, and trust necessary to achieve positive outcomes for their students.
The Dallas ISD Special Education Department has developed a parent survey that will provide valuable feedback to help us improve the Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) process.
The survey will be given to parents at the close of each ARD meeting or they can also download it here.
Once parents have completed the survey, they can submit it in any of the following ways:
- Return it to their student's teacher
- Mail it to:
Attention: Parent Survey
9400 North Central Expressway
Special Education Box 24
Dallas, TX 75231
