Special Education

School District 126 provides a continuum of special education and related services to students who meet requirements in compliance with the Individual with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  All schools offer a variety of services to meet the unique learning needs of every child. The district is committed to providing services in the least restricted environment which enables our students to benefit from the general education curriculum as much as possible.


Support services staff works collaboratively with students, parents, school personnel and general education teachers to address the student’s individual needs.  Once a student is found eligible for special education and/or related services, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is developed to identify the appropriate services for the student.  Parents receive updates on their child’s progress on their IEP goals each trimester.


School District 126 has a full scope of services including instructional services, social work, speech therapy, and related services at all age levels..  The district is also a member of the Eisenhower Cooperative, a special education cooperative which provide special services for our students who may need support in the following areas:

  • Occupational Therapy

  • Physical Therapy

  • Assistive Technology

  • Vision / Hearing Itinerant Support


If you, as a parent, have questions about your child’s progress or about services, please contact either your child’s school team or the Special Education Department at 708-293-3597.
