Welcome!  The purpose of the Special Education Department of ESU 5 is to provide educational innovation for teaching and learning through resources and support for students, families, schools and communities.  The Special Education Department consists of a diverse group of professionals dedicated and committed to improving quality special education programs for area schools.  Special education experts work collaboratively with school districts in Gage, Jefferson and Thayer Counties to provide quality services to students and consultation to educators.  Their dedication to the special education profession is what makes ESU 5 staff member’s outstanding leaders in their field.  I am proud to work with such a devoted group of individuals.
