The Lindale ISD Special Programs department works alongside campuses, staff, and administrators to coordinate and implement Special Education Services.
Our mission is to provide individualized learning opportunities, services, and support to students in order to empower them to achieve their potential. We are committed to fostering collaborative partnerships with parents, school teams, and the community to help achieve our mission.
Our department has continued to experience significant growth over the last few years. There are currently 744 students receiving special education services and 467 students receiving 504 services. Each student has an individualized team of support staff, therapists, teachers, administrators, and parents who work together with the goal of developing individualized plans that will help our students succeed.
In addition to each student’s team, students are provided with individualized services and plans to meet their needs. These services may include: Speech, Occupational, and/or Physical Therapies, Counseling, Specialized Instructional Settings, such as Resource or Learning Lab, Life Skills, Functional Academics, Redirect and Refocus, and Adaptive Behavior Classes. Other services and programs include: Transition Services, Dyslexia Instruction, Special Olympics, Community-Based Instruction, Early Childhood Special Education, and the 18+ Pathways Program. Additionally, the Special Programs Department offers monthly virtual parent newsletters that are available on our webpage.
This has been a wonderful year of accomplishments for our students and staff. The continued progress of our students and the success of our programs are undoubtedly attributed to our talented and dedicated staff, incredible students, committed and supportive families, and the constant support of our Lindale community!
