Aledo ISD provides special education services to children with disabilities to meet their unique needs. Students must be identified as in need of special education through a referral and evaluation process. The district also provides related services including transportation, speech therapy, occupational and physical therapy, adaptive physical education, and individual or group counseling.
To qualify for special education, students must have been evaluated in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, and have a disability such as the following:
- speech or language impairment
- hearing impairment including deafness
- visual impairment including blindness
- orthopedic impairment
- traumatic brain injury
- emotional disturbance
- intellectual disability
- other health impairment
- a specific learning disability
- multiple disabilities
Special education is offered at no cost to parents to meet the needs of a child with a disability.
The instruction offered through special education has been changed in content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to address the unique needs of a child that will result from that child's disability and to ensure access of the child to the general curriculum, so that he or she can meet the educational standards within the jurisdiction of the public agency that apply to all children.
