Special Education Services
In cooperation with the seven local districts, St. Clair County RESA develops, implements, and coordinates special education services and programs for all eligible disabled students who require adjustment from a regular school program.
Determination for Specific Learning Disability
All St. Clair County school districts use the same process in the determination of Specific Learning Disability (SLD).
Early On is Michigan's system of coordinating early intervention services for children birth to age 3 who may have a developmental delay or a medical condition that could lead to delay.
Project Find helps individuals, parents, and people who work with families to connect with the special educational services that may be needed. Eligible children, youth, and young adults may receive special educational services from age 3 through 25 years of age.
Woodland Developmental Center
Woodland is a specialized school serving children who live in the seven St. Clair County public school districts. Woodland works with young people who are moderately cognitively impaired, severely cognitively impaired, and severely multiply impaired. It also can serve students with other disabilities, such as autism, depending upon their needs.
A student must have a disability as determined by a multidisciplinary evaluation team to be eligible for special education services. After that evaluation, an individualized educational planning team recommends placement.
