Learning Opportunities that Lead to Student Success

The goal of Spring Branch ISD is to provide quality educational experiences that prepare students for post-secondary success. The Special Education Department provides support and resources to schools that enable campus staff to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities and provide meaningful learning opportunities.

To receive special education services, students from age 3 through 21, must meet eligibility requirements as a student with auditory impairment, autism, deaf-blindness, emotional disturbance, intellectual disability, non-categorical early-childhood, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, specific learning disability, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain injury or visual impairment and as a result, require specially designed instruction to benefit educationally.

Meeting the Needs of Every Child

Special education is an integral part of the total instructional program of the district. Spring Branch ISD provides a full continuum of services to meet the needs of eligible students that allows access to general education instruction with non-disabled peers to the maximum extent appropriate for each student.

To learn more about the referral process or discuss concerns, we encourage you to contact your child’s home campus or the Special Education Department at 713-251-1700.
