    The Aiken County Department of Special Programs meets the individual needs of students ages three through twenty-one who are eligible for special education and related services according to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

     A full continuum of services is available, ranging from the least restrictive to more restrictive environments, depending on the specific needs of the student. The department also supports schools in ensuring students with disabilities appropriately access the grade level standards and provides specialized instruction as determined necessary by the individualized education plan (IEP).

    In collaboration with students, schools, families, and the community, the Department of Special Programs assists students with disabilities in increasing academic performance and enhancing postsecondary options. Our department serves over 3,100 students by a faculty and staff of over 600 teachers, therapists and other specialists who are trained to provide specifically designed instruction and services designed to meet individual needs of children identified as having disabilities.
