The Winston County School System is committed to identifying and
serving children with disabilities, birth to twenty-one, who need
special education and related services.
We participate in Child Find which is a program designed to locate, identify and evaluate children with disabilities or those who are suspected of having disabilities.
Studies have shown early identification and intervention can prevent more severe disabilities from developing, decrease the need for costly, long-term programs and services, and reduce the emotional costs to parents and children.
Children may be identified and served in one of the following categories:
3) Developmental Delay
4) Emotional Disturbance
5) Hearing Impairment
6) Mental Retardation
7) Multiple Disabilities 8) Orthopedic Impairment
9) Other Health Impairment
10) Specific Learning Disability
11) Speech and Language Impairment
12) Traumatic Brain Injury
13) Visual Impairment
