Our department has continued to experience significant growth in past years and this school year. There are currently 850 students receiving special education services and 470 students receiving Section 504 services in Lindale ISD. Each student has an individualized team of support staff based on his/her needs. This team includes: therapists, teachers, administrators, and parents who work collaboratively to develop 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.
