Special Education Services in Lake Bluff

Lake Bluff Elementary School District 65 provides a full continuum of special education and related services to students with disabilities in accordance with state and federal laws.  Students who receive special education services have one or more disabilities that adversely affect their educational functioning and, therefore, require specialized instruction.  Illinois schools are able to identify and serve children with disabilities under the following categories:

  • Autism
  • Deaf-Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Developmental Delay (for children ages 3-9 years old)
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Intellectual Impairment
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Orthopedic Impairment
  • Other Health Impairment
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Speech/Language Impairment
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Visual impairment

It is important to note that not all students with a disability will be eligible for special education services and it is up to a team of people, including the parents/guardians to determine eligibility and need for special education services.
