Exceptional Child Education (ECE) programs are designed to meet the needs of students who have educational disabilities. Services are provided to students in both comprehensive and special education facilities, and a range of programs, techniques, methods, and materials is available for individualized instruction.

Individual Education Program (IEP) goals for ECE students are developed to address academic, social/emotional, and transition needs (e.g., changing to a different academic program, progressing from one level to another, or starting a career).

ECE services are provided for students with the following disabilities:

  • Autism (U)

  • Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HI)

  • Deaf/Blind (V)

  • Developmental Delay (DD)

  • Emotional-Behavioral Disability (EBD)

  • Functional Mental Disability (FMD)

  • Mild Mental Disability (MMD)

  • Multiple Disability (MD)

  • Physical Disability and Other Health Impairment (PDOHI)

  • Specific Learning Disability (SLD)

  • Speech or Language Impairment (S/L)

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

  • Visual Impairment (VI)
