Special education is instruction specifically designed to address the educational and related developmental needs of children with disabilities.

This includes early intervention services for infants and toddlers, pre-school for students starting at age three, services for school age children in grades K-12, and transition services for eligible students up to age 22.

For students with Individual Education Plans, instruction is based on the core curriculum. The IEP team documents modifications and/or accommodations/ adaptations, teaching strategies, as well as other support systems that may help the student.
