School Age Program
Hamilton County DD Services has two schools that offer instruction to students with significant disabilities. Students are enrolled through their home school district. Student progress is reported quarterly with an annual review of the child's individualized education plan (IEP.)
In addition, many school age children who do not attend our schools are supported by agency staff in partnership with public schools, via our satellite classrooms program and itinerant support team. Our satellite classrooms are in Amity Elementary, Miamitown Elementary, Reading Hilltop Elementary, Deer Park Junior High, Rees E. Price Primary, Houston Elementary and Woodlawn Elementary.

Along with functional academics, special instruction is given in practical skills for living in the community and in the home, as well as training in vocational skills. Occupational and physical therapy, along with speech and language services, are available as specified in the IEP.
Public schools offer services for children with disabilities who do not qualify for services through HCDDS schools. Contact your local school district.
