Welcome to the Special Services Department
 
Our district's Special Services Department includes Special Education, Dyslexia, 504, and Response to Intervention (RTI) services. These programs are coordinated between the central office staff and campuses, but the services are provided on campuses.
 
COCISD provides a wide variety of services to students, including:
  • speech therapy
  • psychological services
  • occupational therapy
  • a teacher for students with auditory or visual impairments
  • physical therapy
  • special transportation
  • home-bound services
  • orientation and mobility services
  • transition planning for post-secondary goals
  • individual education plans for each student in Special Education

For students who need specific dyslexia testing, services and/or accommodations, COCISD provides a teacher trained in both assessment and dyslexia services for daily, pull-out, or testing services with students and staff.
 
Students who may need accommodations to access their education, but may not need specially designed instruction, are served under the district's 504 program. This service provides consistent accommodations for students on their campuses and in testing.
 
COCISD also offers a Response to Intervention (RTI) process for all students, tailored to their individual needs. This process is designed to track students as they progress in reading and math, and provides increasingly intense interventions in order to address problem areas before they require specially designed instruction (special education).
 
The Transition in Texas website is a project of the Texas Secondary Transition/Post-School Results Network in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency.  The network is comprised of representatives from each of the 20 Education Service Centers in Texas.   For more information on Transition in Texas click here.
 
The Texas Transition and Employment Guide provides youth, young adults, parents, and professionals with secondary transition resources to facilitate a young person's progress towards post-secondary goals to education, employment, and community living.  This guide will continually be updated.
