Special Education Services are available to students with disabilities from age 3 until they graduate or until the day before their 22nd birthday, as long as the need for services is indicated in the Individualized Education Plan or IEP. Many families need support and information to navigate Special Education Services. Our website contains many resources for information and assistance in understanding this complicated system. Two Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIC’s) in Illinois are important resources for training and information on rights within the special education system. More detailed information on the PTIC’s can be found below in the section titled Advocacy Organizations.
For additional information on Special Education, you may also visit the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Special Education Homepage.
