Screenings to Identify Disabilities

    CISD Special Education department provides screenings for children with suspected disabilities in an effort to identify every student with a disability who lives within the district’s boundaries.  Crosby ISD is committed to providing excellence in education to all students, and the screenings are designed to help identify children who may qualify for the district’s special education programs.  Eligible students with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 21 can be provided with services to ensure their successful participation in school.  These services and supports may be provided through Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act or through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act.  Special education services are also available starting at birth for eligible children who have a visual and/or auditory impairment.

    If you know a child who may be challenged with a disability, please contact the Crosby ISD Special Education office at 281 328-9200, Extension 1108.  If the child is already a student in Crosby ISD, please contact the counselor at the child’s school.  The counselor will be happy to assist you.  

    The special education personnel will coordinate efforts to evaluate the student and, if eligible, ensure that the student is provided with supports and services needed to benefit from instruction.
