The Goal

The goal of the MUSD Exceptional Student Services Department is to provide a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for all students with disabilities. Our district offers a continuum of service options for students between the ages of 3 and 21.

Services are delivered in the student’s least restrictive environment, at no cost to the family, based on needs determined by the Individual Education Plan (IEP).

Students with disabilities are children who have been evaluated as having:
  • Autism (A)
  • Emotional Disability (ED)
  • Developmental Delay (DD)
  • Hearing Impairments (HI)
  • Other Health Impairments (OHI)
  • Specific Learning Disability (SLD)
  • Intellectual Disability 
  • Multiple Disabilities (MD)
  • Orthopedic Impairment (OI)
  • Preschool Moderate Delay (PMD)
  • Preschool Severe Delay (PSD)
  • Preschool Speech/Language Delay (PLS)
  • Speech/Language Impairment (SLI)
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Visual Impairment (VI)

For explanations of each of these disabilities please refer to the Eligibility Definitions page.
