Children can have all sorts of difficulties growing up. Sometimes problems are obvious right from the start; and sometimes they don?t appear until a child is in school. Some children have trouble learning to read or write. Others have a hard time remembering new information. {{more}}Still others may have trouble with their behavior. For some children, growing up can be very hard to do! When a child is having trouble in school, it?s important to find out why. The child may have a disability. By law, schools must provide special help to eligible children with disabilities. This help is called special education and related services.

Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) each state is required by IDEA to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities in the state who need special education and related services. This is usually done through local school districts such as Kennedale ISD. The identification of a child in need of evaluation for possible disability and services can be done several ways. A child may be identified through Child Find activities of the school district, identified by the parent with a call for assistance to the school district or by a school professional. Parental consent is required before an evaluation can be conducted.


If you suspect your child has a disability or if you just have questions please contact KISD Special Education Department?at 817-563-8080. All information given is confidential.
