Early Intervention and Special Education Services

OUR MISSION: The Division of Early Intervention and Special Education Services provides leadership, accountability, technical assistance, and resource management to Local School Systems, Public Agencies, and stakeholders through a seamless, comprehensive system of coordinated services to children and students with disabilities, birth through 21, and their families. 

OUR BOLD VISION: All students, including students with disabilities, will be ready for school, achieve in school, and be prepared for college, career, and community living. Our ultimate vision is to close existing gaps between children with disabilities and their nondisabled peers.

In the Spotlight: The Division Has a New Name!


The Division of Special Education/Early Intervention Services (DSE/EIS) is now the Division of Early Intervention and Special Education Services (DEI/SES), effective 8/22/18. A slight shift to reflect the birth-21 system of services for children and students with disabilities and their families.
