Copperas Cove ISD provides a continuum of specially-designed instructional services for all eligible students with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 21.

For students who are visually and/or hearing impaired, CCISD collaborates with Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) to provide vision and hearing service to all eligible children beginning at birth.

Students are eligible to meet the need for special education services after an educational disability has been determined through the process of referral and evaluation. A continuum of service options are available, with services determined by a multidisciplinary team familiar with the student’s needs.

CCISD's Special Education Department also addresses communication skills, vision services, hearing impaired services, functional life skills, vocational skills, behavioral interventions and autism support services for qualified students. Related Services can be provided anywhere along the special education continuum of instructional services. These services may include occupational therapy, physical therapy, counseling services, and/or adapted physical education for students meeting eligibility criteria for these specific interventions.
