Help Identifying Children with Disabilities
The Office of Student Services of Saluda County Schools requests your help in the location and identification of all children with disabilities not currently being served. South Carolina statutes require public schools to provide appropriate educational programs for disabled children between the ages of three and twenty-one years. Current categories of disabilities are a preschool child with a disability, developmentally delayed, speech/language impairment, orthopedic impairment, visual impairment, other health impairments, deaf-blindness, autism, traumatic brain injury, multiple disabilities, mental disability, specific learning disability, deaf and hard of hearing, and emotional disability. Anyone who is aware of any child suspected of having any of these disabilities can contact Elizabeth Schumpert at 864/445-8441 on weekdays between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The names of the referral person will remain confidential.
