Specialized Services

 

LACOE's Specialized Services unit provides technical support and professional development to school staff who serve students with disabilities.

We promote inclusion and believe that all children and youth with disabilities can be educated in the general education environment alongside nondisabled peers.

All students with and without disabilities can engage in learning and benefit from meaningful instruction, have friends and be full members of their school communities.
