     Our Vision

    The vision for Special Education in Anderson School District Five is to establish a culture of open communication and a climate of acceptance where diversity and individuality are respected and embraced; where all teachers respond to the challenge of enhancing the learning of all students. 
     
       
     

    Our Purpose

     
    The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandates that all children with disabilities, regardless of the type or severity of their disability, between the ages of three and 21 years old are entitled to FAPE in the least restrictive environment. That is, children requiring specially designed instruction and support services must be educated with non-disabled children to the maximum extent possible in an appropriate program to meet their special needs. Anderson School School District Five offers a variety of programming in all of the major areas of disabilities:  
     
     
     
    Areas Of Disabilities
     
    Autism
    Emotionally Disabled
    Intellectually Disabled 
    Learning Disabled 
    Orthopedic Impaired
    Visually Impaired 
    Speech/Language Impaired 
    Hearing Impaired
    Developmental Delay 
    Traumatic Brain Injury 
    Other Health Impaired
