All children in Delaware are entitled to a free and appropriate public education. In order to be eligible for special education, a child must have a disability and must need special education services and related services. A child may be referred for special education services through the public school, a private school or a parent/ guardian. Evaluations and special education services are provided by individual public school districts. Each school district has a special education coordinator (title may differ) who can assist you. Other community agencies provide assistance in navigating the education system and help you learn about programs, laws and advocacy.
