The Montgomery Independent School District Special Education Department provides educational services to an estimated 850 students with special needs.

Teachers, instructional aides, speech pathologists and related service personnel provide instruction and related services to students who have a disability. Students are eligible for special education services from the age of 3 through 21. Students who have hearing and vision disabilities may receive services from birth.

To be eligible for special education services, students must meet eligibility requirements as a student with an orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, auditory impairment, visual impairment, diagnosis of deaf/blind, intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, learning disability, speech impairment, multiple disabilities, autism, non-categorical early childhood, or traumatic brain injury.

Montgomery ISD instructional arrangements for students include in-class support, resource classes and speech/language supports. Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) are provided at Keenan Elementary. Academic and Behavior Learning Environment (ABLE) and LIFE Skills classes are offered as cluster programs on various campuses.

Related services may include psychological services, occupational therapy, physical therapy, orientation and mobility training, school health services, adaptive equipment and special transportation.

Are you the parent of a pre-school (3-5 years) or school-aged child and have concerns regarding your child's physical, speech, and/or emotional development? Is your child experiencing academic problems which could interfere significantly with educational success? If so, we encourage you to contact your child's home campus or the MISD Special Education Department at 936-276-2460 to discuss your concerns and learn more about the referral process.
