The Division of Early Intervention and Special Education Services (DEISES) provides leadership, accountability, technical assistance, and resource management to Local School Systems, Public Agencies, and stakeholders through a seamless, comprehensive system of coordinated services to children and students with disabilities, birth through 21, and their families.
Our bold vision is that all students, including students with disabilities, will be ready for school, achieve in school, and be prepared for college, career, and community living. Our ultimate vision is to close existing gaps between children with disabilities and their non-disabled peers.
