Fairfax County Public Schools provide special services for the individual needs and differences of children. Within the local school, eligible students may receive instructional accommodation and/or support from our learning disabilities teachers, speech and language clinician, hearing, vision, autism, emotional disabilities teachers, physical and/or occupational therapist as well as advanced academic program services. Written parent permission is needed prior to evaluation of any student for special services. If you have concerns for your child, discuss these with your child’s teacher. The school administrators, the local screening chair or the learning disabilities teacher are also a source for additional information.
Special education eligibility and an Individual Education Plan (IEP) are required before a child may receive specialized services.
