Special Education in SISD

In Smithville ISD, we are dedicated to working as a team to empower students with disabilities; to help them develop to their full potential now in order to prepare them for a future beyond SISD.

Special Education is not a destination; it is services and support for general education. Special education means specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability.

Special education services are provided to eligible students (3 to 21 years of age) who may have one or more of the following disabilities and an educational need that requires specially designed instruction and/or related services:

  • Auditory Impairment
  • Autism
  • Deaf-Blindness
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Non-Categorical Early Childhood
  • Orthopedic Impairment
  • Other Health Impairment
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Speech or Language Impairment
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Visual Impairment


SISD is a member of the Colorado River Cooperative and, as such, receives support and services from staff who, in some cases, serve multiple districts.
