Welcome to The Henderson County Schools Special Education Website

The Department of Special Education is comprised of Special Education Teachers, Speech/Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, School Psychologists, Social Workers, and Consultants. This team of professionals works closely and collaboratively with parents, principals, general education teachers, other district support staff and community service providers to implement the most appropriate plan of services needed by each child with special needs.

We believe that every child with a disability is a child first and foremost. We are dedicated to serving students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. We believe that educating our students is a privilege. We honor parents/guardians who are advocates for their children and welcome full parent/guardian participation in developing students' educational programs.

Please share your comments, ideas, and stories regarding our district special education programs. We thank you for your time, your commitment, your membership on committees, and your support of our department, our staff, and our students.
