Whitley County Schools

Special education

 


Many children are born with or may develop disabilities, which challenge their normal growth and development, impacting their success in school.  Fortunately, many of these conditions can be helped if parents recognize the challenge early and seek help.


If you suspect your child may have special needs, call one of the numbers below.  Don’t hesitate to call their attention to, and/or seek advice about particular behaviors or possible difficulties your child may be experiencing.


Remember, the earlier you recognize your child’s special needs and seek help, the greater the possibility that your child can be helped.  First Steps and your local school district need to know about all children with challenges, ages birth through 21 in order to plan for their individual needs.
