Each year school districts throughout Ohio participate in an effort to identify, locate and evaluate all children with disabilities, birth through age 21. A disability means there are conditions such as multi-handicap, hearing, visual, orthopedic handicap. Many times children with disabilities are not visible because they do not function in the mainstream of a community. Parents are not always aware that there are programs and services available for these children. If you know of a child who may have one or more of the above suspected disabilities, including pre-school age children, please contact the Student Services Office at 330.893.2610. By law, all inquiries are treated confidentially.
