A full continuum of special education services are available in the Richland County School District. Students who require academic assistance receive specially designed instruction to meet their unique educational needs and related services to support the educational program. The services range from support for students placed in general education classrooms to self-contained specialized programs for students whose educational needs require more intensive services and support. Students are serviced through either general education inclusion classrooms, resource special education services, or in an instructional setting. Students with speech or language difficulties receive therapy from speech language pathologists.
