Eligible children are those children who have been identified as having a disabling condition as outlined in the State Department of Education’s Alabama Administrative Code for Special Education Services, Chapter 290-080-090, for Alabama’s current special education disability areas. Exceptionalities served include: Developmentally Delayed, Deaf/Blind, Emotional Disability, Hearing Impaired, Intellectual Disability, Multi-disabilities, Orthopedically Impaired, Other Health Impaired, Specific Learning Disabilities, Speech and Language Impaired, Visually Impaired, Autism, and Traumatic Brain Injury.
