The Exceptional Children’s Program provides specially designed instruction to ensure that all children with disabilities, ages 3 through 21, have available to them a free appropriate public education.  The program emphasizes special education and related services designed to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment and independent living.  Services may include specialized educational instruction, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, hearing impaired services, visually impaired services, and transportation.  The EC Program is looking for any children and youth ages 3-21 with special needs that are not identified or may not be receiving the help they need.  You can assist us in finding these unidentified students by calling Brandi Stephenson, Director of Exceptional Children’s Program, at 828-456-2400.
