Wilson County Schools Exceptional Education Child Find

  • The Wilson County School District Department for Exceptional Education is attempting to contact persons with disabilities from three and to age twenty-one in compliance with the Federal law, which mandates the provision of a Free Appropriate Public Education for students with disabilities.  If a child is having significant difficulty with vision, hearing, speech, behavior, or is experiencing slow development untypical for his/her age, physical impairments, or learning difficulty, he/she may be a child with a disability. If you know of any child whom you feel might qualify for these services, including students suspected of having a disability even though they are advancing from grade to grade, in a private school, homeless, youth in custody and care, or migrant, please contact the principal of your school or the Department for Exceptional Education office at 615-453-7316.
