The Fairfax County Public Schools provide special services for the individual needs and differences of students. Eligible students may receive instructional accommodation and/or support from our gifted and talented, special education teachers, speech and language clinicians, hearing or vision teachers, physical and/or occupational therapists. Written parent permission is needed prior to evaluation of any student for special services. If you have concerns for your child, discuss these with your child’s teacher. The school administrators, the local screening chair, or special education teachers are also a source for additional information. Special education eligibility and an Individual Education Plan (IEP) are required before a child may receive specialized services. Parents may initiate a request for evaluation for Gifted and Talented services or review by the Local Screening Committee by completing a multi-purpose referral form, available in the main office.
