Special Services

Hot Springs County Special Services is committed to meeting the needs of our students with disabilities.

According to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), special education means specially designed instruction, provided at no cost to the parent, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability. This specially designed instruction involves adapting, as appropriate to the needs of an eligible student, the content, methodology or delivery of instruction:

  • To address the unique needs of the child that result from his/her disability; and
  • To ensure access of the child to the general curriculum, so that the child can meet the educational standards within the district that apply to all children.
